American Airlines Mechanic Charged With Tampering With Plane
Today's Donkey of the Day goes to an American Airline mechanic who was charged with tampering with the plane.
An American Airlines mechanic has been charged with willfully damaging, destroying or disabling an aircraft after he allegedly obstructed a tube underneath the cockpit with foam. Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani reportedly sabotaged a plane at Miami International Airport one hour before takeoff in July.
According To Miami Herald
The complaint reportedly states that on July 17 pilots received an error alert as flight 2834 was preparing to take off from Miami International Airport, and the flight was cancelled. During routine maintenance following the incident, a mechanic discovered a tube under the cockpit had been blocked with hard foam. According to the complaint, Alani used the foam material to block a tube that leads from outside of the aircraft to the air data module that tracks speed and other data.
Alani was upset about a dispute between the employees, the union and American Airlines so he could get overtime work.
