   I was wondering if anyone could direct me to some literature on the
subject of aging aircraft.  I am currently embarking on a project
involving multiple site cracking and corrosion in aircraft fuselage
lap joints (remember Aloha Airlines B-737 crash - April 1988 ?).  Any
information would be appreciated.
