Friday, June 13th, 2008

The FAA issued an emergency order for all Eclipse Aircraft today! 

Thanks to a quick acting pilot a possible crash with disasterous effects was avoided today at Chicago’s Midway Airport when the throttle of the Eclipse 500 he was flying got jammed at full power.  As a result of the incident that ended with a safe, but emergency landing, the FAA issued an emergency order to inspect all planes prior to their next flight.
