Russia takes action against bogus parts
5 September 2006

Russian prosecutors and officials with the Transportation Ministry said they have discovered many violations of safety regulations in the work of air carriers, and serious drawbacks in the activities of regulatory bodies. Airplane parts produced by unofficial sources were used in a number of aircraft, possibly leading to in-flight emergencies. Recently an engineer was charged with a fraudulent attempt to sell airplane parts with expired service-life dates by writing down false information on their overhauling in technical documentation.
