Airbus whistleblower faces prison
Ouch!!! You have to read this story in the UK Telegraph
to believe it (HT: Wizbang
). As many of you know I don't fly on Airbus planes due to my own safety concerns and my belief that the EU is using unfair competition practices with our own Boeing Corp. So I do have a dog in the fight to be fair. That said, I would hope that a Boeing employee who came forward with a concern like this would be treated far better by our own justice system and safety boards. Not using different kinds of systems in something that needs to be redundant to ensure the survival of human beings is insane, IMHO.
