ERA Alaska Airlines resumed some service beginning September 17, after voluntarily grounding its entire fleet of six Bombardier Dash 8s and six Beechcraft 1900s after company personnel realized that none of the fleet’s flight data recorders conformed to federal standards. The precise reason the airline’s flight data recorders did not meet standards was not made public.
