    NEW YORK -- The Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday it has issued an alert for Boeing 737 operators to test a center-wing fuel pump that has not been functioning correctly. Pilots reported the pump doesn't always shut off even when the control panel indicates otherwise, the agency said. That raises a potential fire hazard, though there haven't been any reports of such an event, the FAA said. The alert, called an air worthiness directive, impacts about 1,500 jets worldwide, including 551 planes in the U.S. Operators have been told to shut down the pump immediately, but they then have 10 days to test, repair or replace it if needed. No groundings are expected, the agency said.

    One of our ground staff noticed this last week and we reported the matter to Boeing. Glad to hear that they've picked right up on it.
