    Cessna integral fuel tank indicated design flaw…undetectable water the pilot cannot positively detect during the preflight…happened to me four times…so I did a red dyed water in the fuel tank test…got two FAA Safety Recommendations 99.283 and 99.284…FAA actually stopped Cessna deliveries for one day…that same afternoon Cessna suits flew to Kansas City…both Safety Recommendations vanished into thin air…my FOIA request for what happened in the meeting was returned redacted. NTSB Safety Recommendation A-83-6 if the tanks are rubber bladder, also indicated design flaw the NTSB walked away from decades ago, leaving pilots and passengers to die.
