Air Force to inspect A-10s

October 04, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The Air Force said it had ordered immediate inspections and repairs to about 130 of its A-10 aircraft to fix possible cracks in the wings.

An increasing number of cracks have been found in the thin-skin wings, largely related to fatigue in the aging fleet, the service said.

The Air Force has a little more than 400 of the A-10s.
