Jet collision under federal review Another good article from the Strib. It gives not only the facts of the matter, but important background info about NWA's issues regarding maintenance. That might or might not have played a role in the accident, but it's certainly germane. Looking at the photo, I have to play airchair quaterback and wonder why the DC-9 pilot didn't apply reverse thrust when he realized he was too clse to the A-319. Probably too busy trying to troubleshoot the brakes (assuming that's what caused the accident).
