Coming about 812 now with Stevenson of the morning and in response to millions. Fatal incidents aboard an aircraft. This past weekend regulators are now. Making some inspections. And with us this morning news talk more about this Fox News radio is Tonya. Good morning Southwest. Airlines that course an accident we call an accident incident whatever. There in the engine blew up in the part came through the window and it killed the woman. And in no other news the FAA is in this it's inspect all these changes should they have been doing it before or. Well gas station at. Having said that that the first answer I think a lot of people would probably say the the fact that they hadn't been though is not that nobody ultimate. Com. This could actually did something it had resulted. It was an in and August 2016 within a different southwest flight. A similar engine failure and that when did not hurt anyone or killing one thankfully. But after that there was a proposal. That would make the cascade that these should be you know these these engine inspections for guarding it should be mandatory. An and Vermont the manufacturers airlines haggled over the deadlines for forgetting those inspections completed mostly he's dealt with the 737. And I know their material appeared in Hollywood with Boeing in Hoya in general fear. So that's that's kind of what those it was centered around those ten. The FAA did not make it mandatory order at that point. They are doing that now and they say that the you know the order will be made official the next couple weeks but unpaid. Airlines have already started voluntarily doing these inspections and it centers around us and blade arms. Because there have been problems with them occasionally breaking off. We even heard from the NTSB already on this week after the incident on Tuesday where you know prior Robert somewhat bad. There had been mental fatigue that they Doherty keen on the fan blades those cracks the tiny little crack in the android because. They're under a lot of stress. Can't even imagine pushing a lot of Air Canada you know didn't engines there. And they can sometimes break off because of that. Different bank had an ongoing sort of thing since August of 26 team. It's it's not that this week was the first time anyone when I don't quite look that might be a problem. Com and others you can bet if anyone more questions about why this wasn't make mandatory before now. Was yes a number release fan blades on the inside that the injured there and there's just for oriented attitude tremendous speeds constantly. And like you say after awhile. These little tiny stress fractures show up and and then ultimately. What happens one of blows off of something bad happened to them this is the first time I can remember. This kind of incident. In the years and I've been covering news is I don't remember this ever happening before just exactly like this. Yeah come in and south west actually says. That they're gonna gonna inspect all of the similar engine in its in its fleet within thirty days 700 planes. A lot of planes I'm the united authorities said that they would inspect 698. Similar engines in their sleep at southwest did take. At this engine. Though the one that failed on Tuesday didn't technically all under the FAA inspection proposal that was made last August. That's when they you know that I hate we we need my needed dated and then that and like that they didn't make it official and an order at that point. The southwest as well it would cover anyway. The NTSB says well we don't know because of part numbers change from time to time. So it's it's difficult to tell but they said that they that's one of the things they will be looking at is would it have. All of under that because they're going to be doing extensive look into the maintenance records and everything else that goes along with this we. You've got a number of airlines operating in in the US and I had several different manufactured to types of aircraft. So it's not like just one size fits all but the on the other hand you think it just one inspect them all periodically no matter what. An and I guess that's one of the things that you know hindsight 20/20 get Linda back on it knowing that they were back and forth about a deadline to get this done. Is probably zero comfort to Jennifer Reardon Stanley the issue that the woman who died on Tuesday when when all of this happened. You know it's it's it's just it's just a terrible week for the so. Mr. SA thanks for spending some time but this is boring we've they're Bridget.
