FORT WORTH, Texas -- The Federal Aviation Administration has advised American Airlines to re-inspect 56 of its Boeing 767 jets after cracks were detected on at least two planes.
American spokesman Tim Wagner says the cracks were discovered in the pylons that attach the engines to the wings.
Wagner says 54 planes had been inspected by Monday. He says the Fort Worth-based airline has sent one of the cracked pylons to an outside company for metallurgy testing.
Wagner says the inspections have not caused any major disruption to American's schedule.
