For example, a seal in a hydraulic valve which controls the pitch of the stabilizer leaking or bursting which allows an uncontrolled flow of hydraulic fluid into the actuator?

Re: Dutch government increases stock holding in KL-AF group.

Can anyone explain where the amount of 14% comes from? What can be done with 14% that can not be done with e.g. the earlier mentioned 12.9%?

Re: Asiana Airlines A333 knocks tail off Turkish Airlines A321 at IST

I was wondering: from the video the "wing vs tail" collision is clear. However, in the cockpit of the A321, how would the flight crew know what happened? The would have felt the unbelievable side swipe, probably followed by bells and wissles... And then what??
