FAA to order enhanced inspections for B737

US Federal Aviation Administration is expected to issue a safety directive to require US carriers to make enhanced inspections of the tail sections and elevators of certain B737NGs, over concerns about vibrations and possible structural problems (Wall Street Journal, 24-Aug-2010). Expanded inspections are expected to cover more than 1,000 B737s.
