South Korea grounds nine Boeing 737 NG planes with cracks

Reading Time: < 1 minute

South Korea’s transport ministry on Friday said nine Boeing Co 737 NG planes in the country had been grounded after checks found structural cracks requiring repairs.

The suspension follows an order from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration earlier this month for aircraft operators to inspect older Boeing 737 NGs for structural cracks.

Boeing on Oct. 11 said inspections of 810 of the planes globally had led to 38 requiring repairs.

South Korea said it found nine planes with cracks among 42 planes examined.
