FAA to order inspections for older Boeing 737s

Apr 4, 2011 8:25:00 PM - latimes.com
The action, which affects about 175 aircraft worldwide, comes after a hole opened in the fuselage during a Southwest flight. Authorities said "safety is our No. 1 priority"

The Federal Aviation Administration will issue a safety directive Tuesday requiring that older Boeing 737s be checked for the type of cracking that caused a Southwest Airlines flight to make an emergency landing in Arizona last week.
