Airbus will tell airlines to inspect the rudders of 400 Airbus A.310 and A.300-600 aircraft worldwide after the March 6 incident in which the rudder fell off an Air Transat A.310. Airbus will tell airlines to conduct visual and ultrasonic inspections, usually done every five years, within a few weeks. (Bloomberg)
