Feds to require stepped-up inspections for older 757s

12/9/2010 | Wall Street Journal, The · Reuters

The FAA is preparing to order increased inspections of some 600 older model Boeing 757s, according to sources quoted by The Wall Street Journal. The inspections are said to be linked to the October case of an American Airlines 757 that experienced rapid decompression after a hole appeared in its fuselage at 31,000 feet. Boeing says it has already issued an inspection notice for the planes, and the FAA order is intended "to ensure that those inspections are undertaken by the operators."
