    Now I know my coworkers used to think I was crazy when Thunderstorms, snowstorms or weather delayed flights and I loved it. That was back when I was an hourly employee and this meant overtime. This guy is just plain crazy.

    Sounds like he wasn't the best of mechanics to begin with considering all the mistakes made at Alaska Airlines and just getting a slap on the wrist. And were was the "Regulator" during all this. This guy should not have been any where near an airplane except maybe a model one. Should have had his certification pulled back in 2008.

    Yep, now that we know that, it changes the whole perspective. I was thinking at first it was just an idiot, now that more has come out, there is no doubt that he definitely has nefarious tendencies.

    So now there needs to be more vetting of the mechanics who work on our aircraft?

    Foreign repair stations in third world countries have questionable practices with security and vetting of their employees

    It would be simple to sabotage an aircraft there!

    This guy is a veteran A&P long before any vetting was needed. He just got recruited during.

    Sorry another government FAIL. The older brother of the Boston Marathon Bombers questioned by the FBI months before the bombing. Their conclusion "nothing to see here folks move along." The owner of a Rochester, MN flight school notifies the FBI that he is suspicious because he has students that don't want to learn how to land or take off a plane just fly it. Two FBI agents sent in undercover, confirms the owners claims. The FBI Field Office turns over the information to the Justice Department. Answer "there's nothing illegal about they way to want to learn to fly. Result one of the pilots involved in 9/11. EPIC FAIL. This guy screws up what at least 4 times at Alaska Airlines in 2008 and gets fired but still has his A&P Certificate. That certificate should have pulled then and this guy would be not gluing pitot tubes but Airfix plastc models. When will we learn?

    It seems the learning curve in this country doesn’t have a curve anymore, it’s flatlined. :eek::(
