This was NOT an unanticipated mechanical failure! This was the failure to comply with an inspection subsequent to an FAA issued Airworthiness Directive that has been in effect since May, 2006. Someone is responsible for dispatching a plane that should be grounded. It probably was NOT the mechanic who missed the inspection, but rather his management that force the plane to return to service in XX hours in order to squeeze out the revenue.
