Description

Federal regulations require that by the year 2003, every DC-9 aircraft in the U.S. be equipped with a special device to muffle its engine's noise. Nashville Scene learns that these devices, called hush kits, may not be safe. Also uncovered is an apparent cover-up by FAA officials concerning the kit's alleged safety problems.
