Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a 60 year old American Airlines mechanic has been charged with deliberately sabotaging an aircraft. Alani says he was upset over stalled negotiations between the airline and mechanics union.

American flight 2834 was bound for Nassau from Miami on July 17th, when the cockpit crew received an ADM warning as they increased power for takeoff. The crew aborted the takeoff and the aircraft was taken out of service. Once in the hangar, a loose line going to the air data module was found blocked with a hard foam material. Alani admitted to putting foam into the line, and covering it with super glue to harden it in place.

My first thought was wondering what kind of charges he was facing.

Attempted murder?
Wreckless endangerment?

Currently it's one count of willfully damaging, destroying, and disabling an aircraft.

I wonder if the "upset over stalled negotiations" is a cover story...

Covering it super glue to harden in place sounds a bit overkill if you are just trying to trip a sensor so you get some additional overtime...

Hardening it means taking it to the hangar. He didn't work on planes on the ramp, so he wouldn't have gotten the call to work on it if it was just foam. One of the articles mentioned overtime as part of his motive, so he had to ensure he'd get the work.

Never ever allow this person to work in ANY security related job.

Trying to kill a bunch of people who just try to go about their daily business over monetary reasons is just incompatible with our society.

Lock him away. He can now fold paper bags in prison I hope.

Really worrisome is to read the terms "super glue" and "airplane mechanic" together.

So, is the frustration over union negotiations supposed to cover his "intent" to keep him from being labeled as a radical Islamic terrorist?

The fact that he apparently doesn't have ties to Islamic extremists is "cover" to keep him from being labeled a radical Islamic terrorist.

Yeah! No doubt. Mechanics? They've got epoxy!

I wonder if the talk show hosts on the AM dial will talk about this next week.

That is what I was wondering. They don't want to cause a panic, so use disgruntled union member as a cover to deflect from terrorism motive. The guy very well could just be a mad union mechanic who just happens to have a Muslim name, but I don't put anything past the govt when it comes to covering up stuff these days.

I'd be curious to hear what his union has to say about this.
