Engineer says Ethiopian Airlines went into records after Max crash

Bernard Condon, breaking news investigative reporter, New York, reported exclusively that a former Ethiopia Airlines chief engineer says the carrier delved into the maintenance records on a Boeing 737 Max jet a day after it crashed this year, part of what he says was a pattern of corruption that included fabricating records, signing off on shoddy repairs and even beating employees who got out of line. The jet’s crash in March killed all 157 people on board. Though that whistleblower couldn’t say for sure if anything was changed in the records, he said the act of going into them at all when they were required to have been sealed called into question the condition of the plane at the time of the crash as well as the integrity of the government-owned airline as a whole.
