Now thats two 1900's in two years where MX failed to visually check flight control movement after MX. I just don't understand.

BillAMT --

What is the second accident that you refer to?

Perhaps Mesa Beech 1900?
But I thought that was weight & balance in addition to control.

What now?

The general consensus on the Air Midweest 1900 accident in CLT in January, 2003 is that the aircraft was slightly overloaded but that this would not have been a problem if the flight controls had been properly rigged.

The Air Midwest beech ( Mesa ) is the other. Yes weight and balance was an issue, but it would have been a flyable aircraft had the elevator been rigged correctly. Read the NTSB report regarding the accident. The MX crew at the WV repair facility openly admitted to skipping steps and not performing a visual check of the elevator. I've been a mechanic for many years, I just don't understand how you could not perform a functional check on someting so critical. Thats like installing a new engine and not even bothering to start it to make sure it works. I'm just baffeled.
