The Federal Aviation Administration is increasing oversight of American Airlines after three mishaps during landings last month.

Jetliners' wingtips touched the ground during two landings, one in Charlotte, N.C., on Dec. 13, the other in Austin, Texas, on Dec. 24. And in Jamaica, a plane overshot the runway during heavy rain on Dec. 22.

FAA officials said in a statement Friday they will conduct a review of the mishaps to see if there might be a larger issue.

The statement says that if needed, the FAA will work with American on corrective action.

A spokesman for American, a unit of Fort Worth, Texas-based AMR Corp., told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Friday that the company is cooperating with the FAA and conducting its own investigation.
