Description

According to Alaska Airlines lead mechanic John Liotine, for "more than two years before the crash of Flight 261, (he) had inspected the part that investigators now believe caused the crash." Liotine considered the part worn and wanted it replaced, but the airlines failed to heed his recommendation. Liotine also launched a grand jury investigation alleging maintenance work reports were falsified.
