      ASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Air Force officials have issued a time compliance
      technical order requiring immediate inspection and repair of wing cracks
      for a portion of the A-10 Thunderbolt II
      <http://www.air-attack.com/page/39/A-10-Thunderbolt.html> fleet.
      This action impacts approximately 130 A-10 aircraft with thin-skin wings
      installed during original manufacture and is being taken to ensure the
      continued operational safety of the aircraft.

      Such action has become necessary due to an increase in fatigue-related
      wing cracks currently occurring in aircraft assigned to Air Combat
      Command, Pacific Air Forces, the Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve
      Command and Air Force Materiel Command.
