China Airlines Paints Over Name and Logo of Charred Plane
Investigators in Japan claim they have found a hole in the fuel tank of a China Airlines plane that might explain why it burst into a fireball moments after landing. Thankfully, all 165 passengers and crew slid down emergency chutes to safety minutes before the 737 burst into fire after landing Monday at Naha Airport in Okinawa.
That is the good news. The odd news is that China Airlines has painted over its name and logo on the wreckage, apparently to limit further damage to its image. Doesn't whiting out your airline name actually attract more attention to your airline during these trying times? Anyway, let's be glad the cause of the accident was found and no one was hurt.
