The McDonnell Douglas Corp. has agreed to repair at its own expense problems with the Army's new Apache attack helicopter, officials said. The problems, which have not resulted in any accidents, range from cracks inside the tail boom section of the sophisticated gunship to improper wiring. The company's subsidiary, McDonnell Douglas Helicopter, will repair about 100 Apaches, estimated to cost about $48 million, which have already been delivered to the Army. It will also adopt the modifications in its current production line, officials said.
