FAA Orders Tougher Boeing 767 Inspections

The FAA has ordered stricter inspections of Boeing 767s, suggesting they may have consequential rivet problems.

The Federal Aviation Adminstration has ordered stricter inspections of Boeing 767 planes to check whether or not the planes have problems that could lead to a loss of control, according to reports from both CNN and the Los Angeles Times. The FAA published the notice in the Federal Register on Monday.

Though the planes have had regular safety inspections since 2000, the FAA believes that problems with the plane's rivets could cause failures, jams, or possibly even loss of control of the aircraft. According to the LA Times, the possible rivet malfunction has not yet been the cause of any crash, and several airlines have objected to the FAA's action.

Slightly more than 1,000 of the planes have been built since Boeing's inception in 1982. The order takes effect March 3, and airlines have within 6,000 flight hours of that date to inspect their planes.
