Planes in Flight


The Air Force Academy resumes flights with aircraft grounded more than two months ago, because of safety concerns.

The academy suspended flight operations on several models April second following a safety review on inspections and repairs.

Academy officials say they've taken steps to alleviate concerns or problems in the future. They include improved aircraft maintenance, more contractor employees, and a new multi-agency review group.

On January 13th, the academy grounded 45 other aircraft, again because of safety concerns. Most of those were back in the air January 20th.
