WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration late on Friday said it would require operators of some Boeing (N:) 737 NG jetliners to conduct inspections for structural cracks and make repairs as needed following the discovery of cracks on a small number of planes.
The FAA said Boeing notified it of the issue “after it discovered the cracks while conducting modifications on a heavily used aircraft.” Subsequent inspections “uncovered similar cracks in a small number of additional planes.” Boeing said Friday it has been in contact with 737NG operators about a cracking issue, but added that “no in-service issues have been reported.” Neither the FAA nor Boeing immediately said how many planes were impacted by the required inspections.
