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.
