'Broken Wings' is the story of the commercial jet aircraft known as the BAe 146/RJ, which was manufactured by British Aerospace until 2002. This documentary explores the history of the aircraft and story of the health and safety issues that lie hidden behind the controversy that made the aircraft become the subject of an Australian Senate Investigation and part of what many call aviation’s biggest cover-up.

"This film tells the truth about an ugly face of an industry I love and admire. My only regret is that, in a mere 50 minutes, viewers cannot be shown more of the human detritus that this industrial denial has created, and more of which, as a result of corporate fear and societal inertia, it continues - potentially - to create."
'The aviation industry is now in the same position as the tobacco industry was when it was bought to book. Both these industries have traded people's health and safety for profit and now the aviaiton industry is at the end of it's tobacco road.' David Learmount - Safety Editor - Flightglobal: Broken Wings
Running time: 52 minutes

I'm skeptical of the aerotoxicity BS anyways. You're worse off breathing exhaust fumes downtown nowadays.
