Rusty Bolts Behind SAS Crashes
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.
