Nope - just don't buy the accident bit anymore.  This was planned IMHO.

some airlines are having there maint. done in 3rd world settings using interpreters to translate the manuals, and so they airlines are becoming more lax and these flying machine are something that need serious trained pro's to inspect and repair on a defined time and hour schedule, and IF not then you will see this start to happen on a regular basis, very scary indeed!! needs to be stopped and the professional people put back on the inspections, as always money is the issue, BUT stop and think would you get on a bus that is going to be on a LA freeway at 80 mph with completely BALD tires?? well this is worse!!

Is this due to pathetic maintenance (unskilled alien labour) or is this sabotage?

That is my question!!

Aviation is supposed to be a very carefully maintained thing. I remember in the Bush-war our guys had to go over the maintenance not twice but four times and every time with a different crew of technicians verifying the maintenance work.  Nothing was done from "memory" even if it had been done a hundred times in the past - here it seems like a service on a down-town taxi..
