I am starting to think either there is a maintenance man run amuck at US Airways, or someone in the area surrounding the Charlotte airport is taking some rifle practice shots at planes.

What ever happened to the previous issues back in December?

Ok, Maybe not maintenance, but a ramp worker. I thought the last few times US Airways had some suspicious holes in the fuselage, they mentioned that they appeared to come from something like what a screw driver could do. Only someone on the ramp could do this. I apologize for directly singling out Maintenace crews. The article I found interested me, because it seems that once again Charlotte is involved. Now I am hoping someone else out there can get more info on whether this was a "bullet", "bullet hole", or a "bullet like" hold caused by something else.

The FBI is investigating and they said they recovered a bullet and are doing testing on it.

The other interesting thing about this story is that the plane flew from Mexico to Denver to Charlotte. Now USAirways doesn't fly from Mexico to Denver...so why was the plan flying that route?

Now, before anyone says it, it's not maintenance.  biggrin 



If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

Wouldn't Mexico to Denver be a United codeshare?

Well it was a USAirways plane...so it would have to be a USAirways flight...and USAirways doesn't fly Denver-Mexico.

USAirways has done a lot of chartering to some very odd destinations. It might be one of those routings. Prior to its regular routes to San Juan, it actually had a sign on the airport, but it was for charters only. Though, to position a plane or to turn it back at a end of spoke airport would make that expensive.
