Northwest strike

hmmmm. . . briefly heard reports today of four tires blowing out and some other "mechnical difficulty" on planes flying today . . . .. hmmmm. . . is there a possible connection . . . .???? Anyone who is willing to sacrifice another person's safety for their $38 an hour job . . . . .???? It will be interesting to see how this turns out. We just flew NWA few days ago. . ..

Latest Reports - The Detroit News Online: "Northwest Airlines jets roared into the sky over the heads of striking mechanics Saturday as the nation's fourth-largest carrier turned over its maintenance to replacement workers on Day 1 of the industry's first major walkout in seven years.

The union mechanics walked out rather than take pay cuts and layoffs that would reduce their ranks almost by half. They said they don't believe the replacements will be able to maintain the fleet, the oldest among domestic airlines."
