This is the view of Tom Chalmers, respected editor of World Air News about the suspension of Nationwide Airlines flights.
Chalmers said the reason that Nationwide was suspended had nothing to
do with the incident of the engine falling out of the plane, "as it is
designed to do in order to save the wing".
"The whole thing has developed into a paper chase. The Civil Aviation
Authority (CAA) is claiming the grounding was done because their paper
work was not in order.
|'We hope that by the end of the week the airline will take to the skies again'|
From my knowledge everything is in order, but the authority just keeps asking for more and more," said Chalmers.
"The CAA now want paper work and information about a 767 dating back
years to when the aircraft was owned and operated by Air Canada.
