FAA contractors deleted files
NPR, N MooreJanuary 19, 2023

Contractors unintentionally grounded thousands of flights last week when they deleted files while working on the Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system, the Federal Aviation Administration says.

The agency said in a statement Thursday that a preliminary review found the shutdown happened as the contractors worked to “correct synchronization between the live primary database and a backup database.” Investigators so far found no evidence of malicious intent or a cyberattack.
