FAA To Adopt Recommendations On Aging McDonnell Douglas Airliners WASHINGTON - The Federal Aviation Administration will order that aging McDonnell Douglas jetliners undergo modifications to continue flying after a set number of landings, government and industry officials announced Monday.

None of the work is urgent and the airliners remain safe to fly, said Clyde Kizer of the Air Transport Association, which represents airlines and set up a task force which recommended the modifications.

Most foreign airlines, flying another 750 McDonnell Douglas planes, also are expected to comply.
