    That's about 5% of their entire fleet?

    Something is going on with poor inspections of CFM jet engine turbine blades?

    The report was that the aircraft involved didn't have the proper paperwork to show the inspection had been done. The aircraft we're recently aquired. What ever happened to the conformity inspection before putting the aircraft on the line??
