Talking aircraft, not crashes

Sometimes it’s like a broken record: it doesn’t matter how old an airliner is, but it does matter how well maintained` the craft is. We said that again to a local television station the other day about the MD80 class – one of which had crashed in Madrid on takeoff. The plane, a 1993-vintage MD82, was operated by SAS subsidiary Spanair, and we stressed again and again that it was unsafe and unwise to make assumptions about the MD80 fleets of American or Delta based on what may or may not have happened in Spain. We didn’t want to speculate, but we quoted sister media group Flight International as saying that an engine may (or may not)have caught fir e for some reason as the plane rolled down the runway for takeoff. You can see the TV station’s piece on the MD80 here.
