Description

"A four-month investigation by KSTP-TV found the engines in many of the (Minnesota National Guard) choppers are crippled with faulty or defective parts. Our stories discovered the US Army has known about the problems for years but chose to save money by cutting corners on maintenance and ultimately compromising the safety of the engines and putting pilots at risk nationwide.... The Army's maintenance policy was flawed and it resulted in hundreds of in-flight emergencies and crashes nationwide."
