Qantas grounds Boeing 737 fleet after crack on 2nd plane

Nov 01, 2019 00:05 IST

Australian airline Qantas has grounded one of its Boeing 737 NG planes after discovering "cracking" in a section. The carrier said several airlines were inspecting their 737 NG fleets after the crack was found on a second plane near the wing. Though the airline insists cracks don't immediately compromise the safety of an aircraft, but Australia's aircraft engineers' union has called on the company to ground its whole fleet of Boeing 737s.
