15 Eagle Beeches Back in the Air

The normal flight schedule for Air New Zealand regional passengers will resume on November 1, the airline says. The discovery of hairline cracks in Eagle Air planes in August caused flight disruptions for many passengers flying in and out of Blenheim Airport.  The fleet of 18 Beech 1900D aircraft, operated by Air New Zealand subsidiary Eagle Air, was grounded on August 7 for safety reasons when engineers found cracks in the tail section of three planes.  An Air New Zealand spokeswoman said flights between Blenheim and Auckland and Wellington were returning to normal this week. There were 15 Beech operating from today; the full fleet would be back in service and the normal schedule in place for all airports on November 1.
