Thai Airways inspects Airbus A330 fleet

FILE - In this Monday, Sept. 9, 2013 file photo, a Thai Airways passenger plane takes off over a damaged Thai Airways Airbus A330-300 that skidded off the runway while landing at Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok, Thailand. The airline has ordered an inspection of its entire Airbus A330 fleet after this week's accident involving a model that Europe's air safety authority had warned years ago has a defective part in its landing gear. Airline officials said Friday, Sept. 13, they have not found any problems in Thai's 26 other A330s but were investigating why the recommended maintenance failed to prevent a mishap outlined in a June 2011 directive from the European Aviation Safety Agency.
