From the sideline it is disturbing to observe the similarities to the G-REDL accident.
It is even more disturbing to read the safety recommendations after G-REDL, and probably also the 2012 accidents which Airbus never satisfactory closed.

Adding to this the latest EASB mandates replacements of all bolts related to suspension bars. Airbus states that one of the reasons are findings of wrong washer installation on the suspension bar fitting bolts. The reality is that the washers found to have missing chamfered face toward the bolt head, was an Airbus production flaw, and NOT a wrong installation.

What is wrong with the Airbus organization, and where is EASA???
