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
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.
