From Issue 2/78

Mothballed Aircraft

A recent US National Transportation Safety Board bulletin drew attention to the dangers of flying aircraft that have been brought out of storage. In one case an aircraft stored for 19 months hadn't been properly prepared for storage nor checked over before it was flown again. An inflight malfunction resulted and the two occupants were killed in the crash.

Proper preparation prior to and after storage could have prevented this needless accident.
