Don't forget it was NOT just the engineering paperwork. There was evidence of engineering malpractice as well - the FOI documents discuss the fitment of incorrect elevator hinges, without Design Authority approval, and also the use of non-approved materials. I suspect there are other examples of poor engineering practice to be cited that have not been revealed via FOI yet

That one may be a bit of a red herring LJ - I believe the hinge was replaced by a standard Grob item that was superior to the non standard item which was originally fitted to the glider (uneccessary MOD modification perhaps ?)
The MOD are renown for insisting on uneccessary mods
