    The European Aviation Safety Agency on friday issued a directive mandating inspections for A380s after 2 more were discovered to have cracks within their wing structures.

    A380's with more than 1800 flights have to be inspected within 4 days and those with more than 1300 flights need to be inspected within 6 weeks. The effective date is January 24, 2012.

    Hopefully this doesn't translate into too much equipment substituting for those looking forward to a ride on the A380.
