FAA to order inspections of 757s

By Bloomberg News

U.S. airlines must inspect 683 Boeing 757 planes for cracks after a hole opened on an American Airlines plane in October, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a directive to be published Monday.

The hole in the 757-200 plane opened at 31,000 feet, causing the loss of pressure and forcing an emergency landing in Miami, the FAA has said. A notice was posted on a federal Web site Friday indicating when the directive will be published.
