Not an uncommon event in the air world where aircraft safety is a priority.
I remember the Lynx being grounded in about 83 for brunneling on the tail rotor bearing (brunneling was bruising of the bearing).
The aircraft was later allowed to fly after inspections where carried out. These inspections were then introduced into the maintenance schedule. Whether the bearings were replaced bu a different type I have no idea.
However not a big story and I would think that once checks have been carried out the aircraft will soon be fling once more :p

A source at RAF Valley told BBC Wales the fault was spotted by engineers last Tuesday.
So does that mean that they haven't been doing their job properly until now?
The fault was obviously there before.

Wonder how much this'll effect the Thursday war?
Isn't the Thursday war flying carried out by civvies?
Flight Refueling based at Bournemouth Hurn carry out some of the flying roles, simulated missile attacks and ECM for example. They fly Falkons but not the F16 variety!!!!
