    This is scary for anyone who travels frequently by plane!!!! Actual crack in a US Airways DC-9 window frame! Fliers beware of the sub standard maintenance on the airplanes that you fly on. You won't believe this when you see it. This is an actual crack that was found in the window frame on a DC-9 and could have caused a major in-flight problem! I sent this to a friend in aircraft certification to see what action the FAA could take on this problem. See attachment:

    That's not a frame crack, that's a big window crack! :supergrin:

    Now, persuant to FAA AR 16.71d-BIGA55 para 1-moon, you as the identifying reporter, are required to submit a form FARTS (Federal Air Readiness Tech Sheet) in triplicate to the closest office.

    I think Ponti should go investigate.
