Daily Outrage: More than 200 Chinese airline pilots applied with fake résumés

WHAT: The Chinese government is investigating the country’s airline personnel after finding that more than 200 commercial pilots lied about their qualifications and experience.

WHY IT’S OUTRAGEOUS: At least 103 pilots flew for the parent company of Henan Airlines, whose plane crashed Aug. 24, killing 42 and injuring 52 passengers and crew, when it came down short of the runway.

WHAT’S BEING DONE: Chinese aviation regulators hope to soothe public outrage by claiming the résumé faking happened in 2008 and 2009. The offenders were grounded while completing extra training, and new pilot-hiring tests are supposedly tougher.
