American Airlines Could Face biggest FAA Fine in History

WASHINGTON - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) tactics on fining American Airlines a civil penalty of $24.2 million, reportedly the largest FAA fine in history.

Federal aviation officials claim American Airlines made thousands of insecure flights on jets with dangerous wiring.

The chastisement goes back to the inspection record of American's MD 80 aircraft.

The FAA says American failed to properly examine wire bundles in plane wheel wells. Inspections were intended to avoid wires from shorting and causing a fire.
