FAA proposes $230,000 safety penalty against Continental

US FAA proposed a $230,000 penalty against Continental Airlines for allegedly operating a 767 not in compliance with FAA regulations on 22 flights. The agency charged that CO failed to install a required axle washer after replacing the nose landing gear wheel and tire assembly on Aug. 12, 2008, "despite warnings in the maintenance manual and on the tire assembly itself." It added, "The warning said failing to install the washer could lead to failure of the wheel bearing." FAA said it identified three identical earlier violations when it discovered the discrepancy during a records check. CO has 30 days to respond.
