FAA seeks to fine Boeing $3.9 million for faulty jet parts

Safety regulators want to fine Boeing nearly $4 million, saying that the company installed critical wing parts on 133 planes  even though it knew the parts were faulty.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced the proposed civil penalty on Friday.

The FAA action covers parts on Boeing 737s known as slat tracks, which sit at the front edge of a plane’s wings and guide the movement of panels called slats. The slats help give planes more lift during takeoffs and landings.

The FAA said the tracks were made brittle  during a process in which they received a coating of cadmium and titanium, and that suppliers notified Boeing of the problem.
