---------- Panel attributes ANA plane accident to maintenance error by Bombardier

TOKYO - A draft report by a government panel says an All Nippon Airways Co. plane was forced to make a nose-landing last March probably because Canadian maker Bombardier Aerospace failed during maintenance work to attach a bolt necessary for the equipment to operate the front landing gear doors, sources close to the matter said Saturday.

The Aircraft and Railway Accidents Investigation Commission has concluded in the draft of its final report that the accident was attributable only to the maintenance work done shortly after production, as no other work had been done on that part of the plane prior to the accident, the sources said.
