Corruption and Aviation Disasters
United Airlines Boeing 727 crash at the Salt Lake City airport, another crash in which many of the passengers were cremated alive. The official report by the NTSB on the causes of the crash and deaths included:
Dangerous high-sink-rate approach by the captain.
Poor performance of the flight engineer for failure to shut off the fuel pumps and the fuel supply valves, which resulted in fuel being poured outside the aircraft when one of the fuel lines broke.
Poor performance of the crew in evacuating the passengers after the aircraft had come to a stop. At that time, none of the occupants were injured.
NTSB Political Board
Falsification of Accident Report
What the NTSB political board members deliberately withheld from that report included the following:
FAA safety inspector-investigator Rodney Stich had repeatedly reported the dangerous high-sink-rate practices by pilots at United Airlines.
Stich had made an official report of that same captain as having a dangerous high-sink-rate approach practice, which Stich observed on an enroute flight check from Chicago to Denver via Omaha.
The FAA suspension of federal safety investigator Stich from all inspection dutiesafter Stich had reported an even more dangerous high-sink-rate approach by a senior United Airlines captain and senior union member while landing at Los Angeles International Airport. The pilot's union and the airline put pressure on to remove Stich from his safety functions, a common practice at that airline that had unusual control over the government's aviation safety personnel.
That NTSB members had been repeatedly told by that FAA inspector about the massive safety violations, some of which were felonies involving falsified records on major safety requirement that were never accomplished.
Unprecedented Safety Violations and Fraud
The overall safety problems involved in a long line of airline disasters involving United Airlines and the culture within the FAA included:
Unlawful refusal by United Airlines to provide legally required training and competency checks to the cockpit crew members.
Falsification of federally required safety records.
Threats by key United Airlines personnel to get inspectors transferred if they continued to report the safety problems and safety violations at that airline.
Harassment against inspectors by FAA management personnel for having make the required reports on the safety problems and serious violations..
As a result, 42 people were cremated alive in that crash. None of the guilty were ever identified. Instead, most continued to receive the benefits of the misconduct that directly saved United Airlines considerable money (while the insurance companies paid for the crashes).
Stich appeared as guest on over 3,000 radio and TV programs, and over 30,000 books were sold for the various editions of Unfriendly Skies, making it probable that many of the next-of-kin knew about these problems. Not a single one ever made any effort to have these matters investigated. The only known reaction was to sue the airline for money.
More information about the corruption that existed and was documented at United Airlines is found in the book, Unfriendly Skies: 20th & 21st Centuries.
Ripple Effects Continued for Years
Including the 9/11 Hijackings
There is a strong probability that those people at United Airlines, identified in FAA records as engaging in various forms of corruption, made possible, or cultivated, the culture, arrogance, and corruption in those certain offices of the FAA that continued for years, and which were the areas of primary blame for the conditions that enabled four groups of terrorists to hijack four airliners on 9/11. This is no exaggeration, and these ripple effects can be seen when the full story of the corruption within the FAA is understood.
The loss of two United Airlines aircraft to terrorists on September 11, 2001, were ripple effects from the misconduct years earlier of certain people at United Airlines and a great number of people within the FAA. Both of these groups engaged in corrupt, and even criminal activities, as described in Unfriendly Skies: 20th and 21st Centuries. The actions by both groups reinforced each other, effectively blocking the few competent and dedicated federal safety agents from enforcing government safety requirements. Many other crashes followed. But particularly ironic was that two of the four airliners hijacked on 9/11 were those of United Airlines.
One effect of discovering the corruption at United Airlines−and within the FAA−was that Rodney Stich was so infuriated by the arrogance and corruption that he became an activist against high-level corruption. With the help from dozens of other former government agents and insiders, he discovered criminal activities in other areas of government that were inflicting great harm upon the American people and upon the nation's security. These are detailed and documented in the series of books related to this site.
