Hey guys,
Did anyone else here the news about the faulty Italian a/c parts being sold on to other Airlines around the world?

The parts are supposedly from old Alitaila aircraft that have been deemed unusable but taken by thieves and sold on again with fake papers. The fake papers confirm the goods are air-worthy. They reckon more than 1000 airplanes from over 160 countries worldwide have been affected!!!

They have suspicions that this is what might have caused the November 2001 Air crash in New York!

Greedy bastards.
But like most of the time, no one will take the responsibility. Like Enron.. ring'n'run.
