C-130 Cargo Planes Grounded

The Air Force says it is grounding 30 of its oldest C-130 cargo planes and putting flight restrictions on 60 others after discovering severe wing cracks.

Thirteen of the 30 planes grounded are at the Little Rock air force base.

The moves are not expected to have a major impact on the war effort.

The Air Force Chief of staff says, grounded cargo planes that were used in Iraq will be replaced by newer ones.
