FBI Investigates Holes in 3 US Airways Jets

From Times Wire Reports

NORTH CAROLINA

The FBI is investigating the cause of several puncture holes found near the landing gear of three US Airways aircraft.

The holes, ranging in size from a pencil point to a dime, were discovered on a Boeing 737 and two Airbus 320s during routine inspections this week. Two of the planes were at the airline's hub airport in Charlotte and one was in Florida.

FBI spokesman David Martinez said the agency was assessing whether the damage was the result of regular operations or an intentional act.
