(Newser) – An investigation following a deadly plane crash in China last month has found that at least 200 Chinese pilots lied about their flying experience. More than half of the pilots work for the parent company of Henan airlines, which was involved in the recent crash, the worst in the nation in several years, reports AP. A crash in northeast China killed 42 people last month, and a second accident also involving Henan injured 52 people.
