Investigation into aircraft cracks
Wed, 08 Aug 2012 6:38a.m.
Eagle Air says its entire fleet could be out of the skies for two weeks after hairline cracks were found in the tail area of several aircraft.
Air New Zealand has revealed an investigation is underway into all 18 of its subsidiary's Beech 1900D craft, which have been servicing regional destinations since 2001.
Eagle Air General Manager Carrie Hurihanganui says the inspection may affect services:
"If in our inspection we find cracking, we will be repairing and addressing those, and the timeline for that, it could take up to two weeks."
She says passengers booked to travel will be accommodated while the fleet is out of service.
