United Airlines case involves one aircraft, a Boeing 737. According to the FAA and the airline, a pilot noticed a low fuel pressure indication while on a flight from Denver, Colorado, on April 28, 2008. The pilot shut down an engine and returned to the Denver airport.

The FAA said the aircraft had flown more than 200 times in the unsafe condition before the problem was discovered. Aerospace in the news… uh oh United and US Air!
