Description

The Wall Street Journal looks at the reasons for the recent accidents with Cessna planes, and cites the results from an investigation of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The story reveals that even if pilots performed the preflight procedures specified by Cessna, some water may remain in fuel tanks and pose safety hazards. The reporter follows the debate between FAA and Cessna's management about how "to remedy the apparent fuel-tank flaws" through specific design changes.
