(Newser) – Donald Trump: entrepreneur, reality show host, airline safety investigator. The real estate mogul has a friend who makes handcarts out of the same material the Airbus 330 rudders are made of, so the Donald has a theory about Air France Flight 447, the New York Post reports.

“He gets about 10 calls each year that detail how a cart will disintegrate with very little physical abuse or provocation,” Trump posted on his blog Friday. “So don't expect to see me on a plane with a plastic rudder.”
