A crack was found in the main landing gear of a Japan Air System (JAS) MD-81 jet, the same type of aircraft as the one whose left main gear collapsed on landing January 1. The finding prompted JAS to ground the aircraft and five other MD-81s it has not inspected, forcing the cancellation of 13 flights. (Mainichi)
