||Observer (Charlotte, N.C.)
||This story uncovers the truth behind the majority of airpline crashes due to maintenance mistakes. In the past decade, maintenance problems have accounted for 42% of fatal airline accidents. Reporters found that many airlines are not spending enough time and money maintaining planes, and mechanics aren't checking planes as often. There is also an increase in the use of contractors for repair work, who often are not regulated as heavily, and are not as well trained.
