And The Plane's In Bad Shape, Too
It started when a
German passenger aboard an Air China flight from Beijing to
Nanchang noticed something just didn't sound right as the pilot
started the engines. In spite of an apparent language barrier, the
German's concerns became the entire cabin's concerns and the flight
was stopped before it could take off.
"The man beside me is a German mechanical engineer. He said such
noises indicated something wrong with the aircraft. Its conditions
might not fit flying," the Beijing Times reported, quoting a female
passenger identified only as Ma.
The crew, heeding the cries of passengers, taxied the aircraft
back to the ramp and called in mechanics, who indeed found a major
oil leak in one of the engines. The flight was delayed four hours
before the aircraft was finally repaired and sent on its way.
