'Cracks found in 50 of Boeing's 737NG planes have profound impact on SA fleet'

After worldwide inspections, cracks were found in up to 50 of Boeing's popular 737NG planes.

SA Flyer Magazine editor Guy Leitch explains the extent to which the country's airlines may be affected and how widely the plane is used.

In fact, it has now become the mainstay of almost all the domestic airline's fleets, so it does have a profound effect on our local fleets.
