European Aviation Safety Agency ordered all A380s checked for wing crack:

EASA, which had already said last month that 20 such jets must be inspected following the discovery of cracks in the wings of Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Air France planes, has expanded the checks to all 67 A380s currently in operation.
