Federal regulators are prepared to order a second round of inspections for more than 100 Boeing 737 aircraft, after earlier inspections failed to correct a potential vibration problem in the planes' tails. Depending on the age of the aircraft and other factors, the inspections will be due in as little as six days. A Boeing spokeswoman says the cause of the elevator vibration has already been corrected in the factory, and the current round of inspections is being ordered as a precaution.
