After years of delay, a FAA rule is set to go into effect requiring a device to be placed in aircraft to prevent fuel tanks from exploding.  The rule comes many years after the explosion aboard a TWA flight took the life of 230 passengers.

This is welcome news.  The rule would require these devices to be installed in new aircraft, as well as requiring retrofitting in several models of existing aircraft.

Aviation safety and regulations are a concern of the law firm of Gray and White Law.  The attorneys at Gray and White Law were recently able to obtain a settlement for the family of one of the victims of ComAir Flight 5191.
