(( The federal aviation administration stepped up its inspection orders for boeing 7-37 passenger jets sunday, leading to the immediate checking of some older models. The F-A-A says during inspections of fuel tank wiring started late last week, a serious problem was found in an older united airlines 737, leading to the expanded inspection order.
TOM MCSWEENEY/FAA DIRECTOR OF AIRPLANE CERTIFICATION:"BEFORE THE AIRLINES CAN PUT ANY OF THE AIRPLANES INTO REVENUE SERVICE TODAY, THEY MUST BE INSPECTED, TODAY OR ANY DAY FOLLOWING TODAY."
The F-A-A is mandating the inspection of wiring that runs through the wing fuel tanks of 7-37's. what inspectors found in the united plane was a spot that showed signs of sparking and a second area where wires had worn bare. the aircraft had been in service for about 50-thousand flight hours.
There are over 1000 boeing 737's flying in the united states. sunday's expanded order covers 118 7-37's. older model 100's and 200's.
MCSWEENEY:" I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THOSE AIRPLANES AFFECTED BY THIS AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVE, WITH 50-THOUSAND HOURS OR MORE ON THEM, WILL NOT FLY IN REVENUE SERVICE UNTIL THOSE INSPECTIONS ARE COMPLETED."
In the mean time, air carriers like southwest airlines, that has an all-737 fleet, united airlines and u-s airways, who also have large 737 fleets are having to deal with some flight delays or cancellations and upset passengers.
CASSIE EDGAR/VANGUARD PASSENGER/KANSAS CITY, MO: As the business week begins, the full impact of the f-a-a order has yet to be felt. the f-a-a says it's apologetic to the flying public about the disruption. but safety is the most important thing.
