More than 300 Boeing 737 airliners might have parts susceptible to premature damage, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in a statement Sunday. The specific parts affected were slat tracks, which “guide the slats located on the leading edge of an airplane’s wings,” according to Boeing. The company identified 20 737 NG and 21 737 Max aircraft that were most likely to have the faulty parts while recommending that airlines inspect another 271 planes.
