Planes To Undergo Emergency Inspections

Just days after a woman died on a Southwest plane that suffered an engine explosion, US aviation officials have ordered emergency inspections of hundreds of airplane engines. The Federal Aviation Administration order issued Friday requires operators of planes using a specific engine, the CFM56-7B, to inspect those engines' fan blades within 20 days. Citing estimates from the manufacturer, the FAA said about 352 engines in the US and 681 worldwide will have to under go the inspections. The inspections only apply to engines with more than 30,000 total cycles.
