Haley-linked airplane incident just got stranger

Airline safety has suddenly been put under the microscope.

That has caused renewed scrutiny over Nikki Haley’s past actions in her lucrative board gig at defense-contract-dependent aeronautic company.

And one Haley-linked airplane incident just got stranger.

Alaska Airlines put passengers through a nightmare when a part of the side of the plane suddenly blew off mid-flight.

The Boeing 737 MAX 9 was forced to make an emergency landing only 20 minutes after takeoff.

Thankfully, nobody was killed or severely injured.

However, questions abound as to how such a dangerous thing could have happened.

And some of those questions will not be answered because the cockpit recording for the flight was taped over.

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Chair Jennifer Homendy explained, “The cockpit voice recorder was completely overwritten. There was nothing on the cockpit voice recorder…We have nothing.”

That does not exactly inspire confidence in airline travel.

NBC News reported that the device “automatically recorded over the pertinent voice data because someone failed to power it down…It starts a fresh recording, wiping out the last one, every two hours.”

The FAA has some more explaining to do

Homendy added that the “circuit breaker was not pulled.”

The NTSB did, however, recover the missing door plug that detached and left a gaping hole in the cabin.

Homendy continued, “I’m excited to announce that we found the door plug… We’re going to go pick that up and make sure that we begin analyzing it.”

Homendy reiterated that losing the cockpit recording was a big blow and said that she is pushing for recordings to last 25 hours instead of two.

“I cannot emphasize enough how important that is for safety,” she said.

Establishment Presidential candidate Nikki Haley made millions while serving on the board of Boeing and allegedly blocked a transparency initiative.

In light of two Boeing 737s crashing in 2018 and 2019 and killing 346 people, Haley reportedly pushed for a “no” vote to share the company’s spending on lobbying efforts that may have loosened FAA regulations.

Shareholders wrote in an SEC filing, “In the wake of the two 737 Max jet crashes, questions have been raised whether Boeing’s lobbying led to relaxed Federal Aviation Administration oversight.”

Questions swirl around Haley; DEI

Haley resigned from the board in 2020.

Meanwhile, the FAA is lowering its standards in the name of diversity, equity, and inclusivity.

The FAA announced, “Targeted disabilities are those disabilities that the Federal government, as a matter of policy, has identified for special emphasis in recruitment and hiring…They include hearing, vision, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disability and dwarfism.”

Airline safety is not an area where “woke” nonsense can be tolerated.
