Rusty Bolts Behind SAS Crashes

Published onsdag 19 september 2007 kl 13.13
The SAS crash-landing in Lithuania

Scandinavian Airlines cancelled 37 flights on Wednesday because of ongoing problems with their Dash 8-Q400 planes.

The problem which caused two crash landings has now also been found in other planes.

The culprit: a rusty bolt.

According to the Danish Board of Accident Investigation, corrosion caused the landing gear to malfunction.

Meanwhile, Stockholm’s office of the public prosecutor has told SAS that a preliminary investigation is underway. SAS is under suspicion of posing danger to others - an accusation the airline has rejected.
