Check of Brazilian planes in US is ordered after crash

Investigators probing a Provincetown-Boston Airline crash that killed 13 people last week have issued an emergency order for immediate inspection of all the Brazilian-made Embraer Bandeirantes Model 110 planes flying in the United States. There are about 130 such aircraft in use in this country, an FAA spokesman said, but he did not know how many were used to carry passengers.

The FAA said Sunday that last year it had warned PBA of potential defects that could cause the tail to break off.
