  • Repair History On Southwest 737 With Fuselage Rupture
    Posted by Andrew Compart 4:00 PM on Apr 04, 2011

    As everyone knows by now, the fuselage ruptured on a Southwest Boeing 737-300 aircraft on Friday. You can review the Service Difficulty Report (SDR) history at this site by searching for tail number 632SW and checking off the box for SDR Information. You'll see several reports about cracks, including one on the fuselage as recently as March 2010, but I'm not sure how unusual that is, if at all. And, of course, the fact that there this an SDR for it means the crack was repaired, as indicated on the report.
