FAA Whistleblowers Speak Out About Buffalo Crash

The investigation takes a hard look at the mistakes that led to the Colgan Airlines flight that crashed in Buffalo, NY, killing 50 people. As the Wall Street Journal put it in their preview last week, “It is a frightful as well as infuriating history of warnings disregarded, whistle-blowers punished and profit-seeking at any cost.”

O’Brien, along with television producer Rick Young, has spent much of the past year examining each one of those factors. Their investigation is now detailed in the Frontline program called Flying Cheap. It shows the seamy side of the regional airline industry. It’s the side of the industry you don’t see when you are buckled into a passenger seat. And, O’Brien says, everything that is wrong with the industry came to a head last February in Buffalo.
