FAA orders cockpit windows on Boeing 747s inspected, replaced
U.S. airlines must have cockpit windows on their Boeing Co. 747 jetliners inspected or replaced after reports of fires on other Boeing planes, the Federal Aviation Administration said. The order is aimed at eliminating loose connections in the electrical system that heats windows to prevent ice from forming, the FAA said in a notice recently slated to be published in the Federal Register. The order covers 251 aircraft. The inspections will cost carriers $5.4 million collectively.
