Poor Maintenance Led To Jetliner Crash

Sponsored by:

Federal investigators believe poor maintenance may have led to an Alaska Airlines crash that killed 88 people off the Central California coast in January 2000.

A draft report that will be considered tomorrow by the National Transportation Safety Board blames a lack of grease on a tail component. The report says that caused excessive wear and the eventual failure of a mechanism that helps move the plane´s stabilizer and sets the angle of flight. The Seattle-based airline has said Boeing recommended the wrong kind of grease for the mechanism and that it was poorly designed.
