The complaint alleges that on Nov. 17, 2003, a Federal Aviation Administration inspector was a passenger on an American flight from Orlando, Fla., to New York's La Guardia Airport when he saw fuel leaking from a wing of the McDonnell Douglas MD-82.
If this supposed "fuel leak" was so dangerous, it begs the questions:
1. Why did this FAA "inspector" permit the flight to depart, continue or whatever?
2. Why did this FAA "inspector" not ground the plane upon arrival?
3. If there was a "fuel leak", why did/has FAA do/done nothing?
