Lawmaker Says BAE Tried To Mask Stinky RJ Cabins

Something Smells Here...

BAE 146 regional jets are back in the news, after a member of the British parliament suggested the defense company had a secret deal between British Aerospace Regional Aircraft, East West Airlines, and Ansett Transport Industries, according to the London Daily Mail.

Lord Tyler claimed a document leaked to him, signed in 1993, shows BAE paid the airlines $674,000 to not reveal the aircraft leaked toxic fumes into the passenger cabin.

Claims the carriers were paid to be quiet over alleged design flaws that led to cabin contamination in the BAE 146 jets, also used on flights by the Queen of England, are being debated in the British House of Lords.

A British government spokesman says that there was no evidence to suggest that there was a major problem, but the Mail says, the allegations are an embarrassment to BAE.

One BAE official said, "We are not prepared to comment on any document that has been obtained illegally, and/or in breach of confidentiality agreements."
