WASHINGTON, DC -- The Federal Aviation Administration is getting ready to order more safety checks on hundreds of planes.

The directive will affect more than 400 Boeing 767 jets.

The problem is a potential danger in the movable tail sections of the planes.

The tail sections can jam and cause pilots to lose control of the aircraft.

The safety order goes into effect on March 3.

The Federal Register says airlines have six years to address the problem.

It's unlikely any airlines will cancel flights over the directive
