The Federal Aviation Administration on Friday instructed airlines to inspect some stored Boeing 737 planes for corrosion that could lead to engine shutdowns as hundreds of aircraft remain idled because of a drop in demand amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The order for inspections on planes that have not been operated for a week or more will impact about 2,000 jets in the U.S., the FAA said. The orders do not relate to the Boeing 737 Max, which has been grounded worldwide since March 2019 after two deadly crashes.
