Why would FedEx get a 9 year/30,000hr inspection interval with no cycle limit? I thought the 7500 cycle would be the most limiting factor, at least according to the article!

Because they own their PMI and the Swamp is deeper than you think. And there goes another airframe to "We know what we are doin". Thankfully the crew survived and it will soon or has already Not been announced that they will adhere to the original MX. schedule.

What is PMI? (I'm gonna try to guess - M = maintenance? I = inspectors? No idea on the P.)

I remember a similar problem at United Airlines with the DC-3 way -way back in 1947.We never had a collapse as we either stop drilled the crack or added a support plate to the area.

There is no excuse for not inspecting a MD-10-10F that is as old and has as many cycles on it as this airframe probably has, out of sight , out of mind, the management responsible for inspection was asleep at the wheel. As an old friend of mine from MacDac days told me many years ago, " We do the best possible job we can on aircraft inspection because the crew can't pull it over to the curb "

The bottom line is some pencil neck with a tie pushed the PMI to extend the O.H. period requirement to tell his boss that he saved them a million "this year". The book value of the airframe was inconsequential, the real value was the delivery of millions of boxes on time. That is gone, and I hope he is too!

Lets hope that all and every management understands that the loss of an airframe is much more expensive that any maintenance insp or test.
