The purpose of these notices is to give interested persons an opportunity to participate in the rule making prior to the adoption of the final rules. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2005–21470; Directorate Identifier 2003–NM–45–AD] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10–10, DC–10–10F, DC–10–15, DC–10–30 and DC–10–30F (KC–10A and KDC–10) Airplanes; Model DC–10–40 and DC–10–40F Airplanes; and Model MD–11 and MD– 11F Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain McDonnell Douglas Model DC– 10–10, DC–10–10F, DC–10–15, DC–10– 30 and DC–10–30F (KC–10A and KDC– 10) airplanes; Model DC–10–40 and DC– 10–40F airplanes; and Model MD–11 and MD–11F airplanes. This proposed AD would require for certain airplanes, modifying the thrust reverser command wiring of the number 2 engine. For certain other airplanes, this proposed AD would require modifying the thrust reverser system wiring from the flight compartment to engines 1, 2, and 3 thrust reversers. This proposed AD would also require installing thrust reverser locking systems on certain airplanes. This proposed AD is prompted by a determination that the thrust reverser systems on these McDonnell Douglas airplanes do not adequately preclude unwanted deployment of a thrust reverser. We are proposing this AD to prevent an unwanted deployment of a thrust reverser during flight, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by August 15, 2005.

Discussion In 1992, the FAA issued a document titled ‘‘Criteria for Assessing Transport Turbojet Fleet Thrust Reverser Safety.’’ This document is based upon the premise that no failure of thrust reverser components anticipated to occur inservice should prevent continued safe flight and landing of an airplane. In order to comply with the criteria in the document, Boeing has developed a modification that increases the level of safety of the thrust reverser system by incorporating wire modifications on McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10–10, DC–10–10F, DC–10–15, DC–10–30 and DC–10–30F (KC–10A and KDC–10) airplanes; Model DC–10–40 and DC–10– 40F airplanes; and Model MD–11 and MD–11F airplanes; and by installing thrust reverser interlocks on Model DC– 10–40 and DC–10–40F airplanes. Based upon the Boeing safety evaluations, we have determined that the existing thrust reverser systems on these McDonnell E:\FR\FM\16JNP1.SGM 16JNP1 35050 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 115 / Thursday, June 16, 2005 / Proposed Rules Douglas airplanes do not adequately preclude unwanted deployment of a thrust reverser. Such unwanted deployment of a thrust reverser during flight could result in reduced controllability of the airplane. This is the third in a series of planned rulemaking actions that will encompass the entire fleet of McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10–10, DC–10–10F, DC–10– 15, DC–10–30 and DC–10–30F (KC–10A and KDC–10) airplanes; Model DC–10– 40 and DC–10–40F airplanes; and Model MD–11 and MD–11F airplanes. This rulemaking action would be the final planned action and would complete the FAA’s review of these models based on the 1992 ‘‘Criteria for Assessing Transport Turbojet Fleet Thrust Reverser Safety’’ for McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10–10, DC–10–10F, DC–10–15, DC–10–30 and DC–10–30F (KC–10A and KDC–10) airplanes; Model DC–10–40 and DC–10–40F airplanes; and Model MD–11 and MD–11F airplanes. Other Related Rulemaking We have previously issued AD 2001– 05–10, amendment 39–12147 (66 FR 15785, March 21, 2001), applicable to all McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10 and MD–11 series airplanes, and KC– 10A (military) airplanes. That AD requires installation of thrust reverser interlocks on certain airplanes, inspections of the thrust reverser systems to detect discrepancies on certain other airplanes, and corrective actions, if necessary. The actions required by paragraphs (c) and (i) of AD 2001–05–10 are done in accordance with McDonnell Douglas Alert Service Bulletin DC10–78A057, Revision 01, dated February 18, 1999. We have also previously issued AD 2001–17–19, amendment 39–12410 (66 FR 44950, August 27, 2001), applicable to all McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10 series airplanes, and KC–10A and KDC– 10 (military) airplanes. That AD requires certain modifications of the thrust reverser control and indication system and wiring on each engine. The actions required by paragraph (a) of AD 2001– 17–19 are done in accordance with McDonnell Douglas Service Bulletin DC10–78–060, dated December 17, 1999. Relevant Service Information We have reviewed Boeing Service Bulletin DC10–78–066, Revision 01, dated November 30, 2001 (for Model DC–10–10, DC–10–10F, DC–10–15, DC– 10–30 and DC–10–30F (KC–10A and KDC–10) airplanes); and Boeing Service Bulletin DC10–78–067, dated October 30, 2002 (for Model DC–10–40 and DC– 10–40F airplanes). These service bulletins describe procedures for modifying the thrust reverser command wiring of the number 2 engine, located in the aft fuselage/pylon area, to provide wire separation. The modification includes installing new tubes, revising the wiring, and routing the wiring as specified in the service bulletins. Boeing Service Bulletin DC10–78–067 also specifies prior or concurrent accomplishment of the following service bulletins: CONCURRENT SERVICE BULLETINS FOR BOEING SERVICE BULLETIN DC10–78–067 McDonnell Douglas Revision level Date Action Alert Service Bulletin DC10–78A057 (cited as a source of service information for AD 2001–05–10). 01 ...................................

We have also reviewed Boeing Service Bulletin MD11–78–007, Revision 02, dated August 22, 2001 (for Model MD– 11 and –11F airplanes). This service bulletin describes procedures for modifying the thrust reverser system wiring from the flight compartment to engines 1, 2, and 3 thrust reversers. The modification includes revising and routing the wiring; and verifying the proper configuration code and revising the wiring if required; as applicable. Installation of an additional thrust reverser locking system at each wing position. The modification also includes a test of the thrust reverser system. Boeing Service Bulletin MD11–78– 007 also specifies prior or concurrent accomplishment of the following service bulletins: CONCURRENT SERVICE BULLETINS FOR BOEING SERVICE BULLETIN MD11–78–007 Service bulletin Revision level Date Action McDonnell Douglas Service Bulletin MD11– 31–091.

VerDate jul<14>2003 15:39 Jun 15, 2005 Jkt 205001 FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD We have evaluated all pertinent information and identified an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on other airplanes of this same type design. Therefore, we are PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 proposing this AD, which would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously, except as discussed under ‘‘Differences Between the Proposed AD and Service Information.’’ Although AD 2001–05–10 and AD 2001–17–19 already provide certain E:\FR\FM\16JNP1.SGM 16JNP1 35051 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 115 / Thursday, June 16, 2005 / Proposed Rules thrust reverser safety enhancements, this proposed AD is necessary to ensure that failure of a thrust reverser component would not prevent safe flight and landing. Differences Between the Proposed AD and Service Information Boeing Service Bulletin DC10–78– 067, dated October 30, 2002, specifies that McDonnell Douglas Service Bulletin DC10–78–064, June 24, 2003, be done prior to or concurrently with Boeing Service Bulletin DC10–78–067. We have determined that the installation of the thrust reverser locking systems specified in McDonnell Douglas Service Bulletin DC10–78–064 may be done after accomplishing the actions specified Boeing Service Bulletin DC10–78–067 as long as the actions in both service bulletins are done within 60 months. We have coordinated this difference with the airplane manufacturer. Costs of Compliance There are about 612 airplanes of the affected designs in the worldwide fleet. This proposed AD would affect about 245 airplanes of U.S. registry. The following tables provide the estimated costs for U.S. operators to comply with this proposed AD, for the applicable actions, at an average hourly labor rate of $65.

Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701, ‘‘General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. VerDate jul<14>2003 15:39 Jun 15, 2005 Jkt 205001 Regulatory Findings We have determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify that the proposed regulation: 1. Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; 2. Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and 3. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 this proposed AD. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Safety.

ACTION: Notification of availability of FMP amendment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Caribbean Fishery Management Council (Council) has submitted a comprehensive amendment to its Spiny Lobster, Queen Conch, Reef Fish, and Coral Fishery Management Plans (FMPs) for review, approval, and implementation by NMFS. The amendment proposes to: establish management strategies to end overfishing and rebuild overfished stocks; require standardized collection of bycatch data; minimize bycatch and bycatch mortality to the extent practicable; designate essential fish habitat (EFH) and EFH habitat areas of particular concern (EFH-HAPCs) for managed stocks; and minimize, to the extent practicable, adverse effects on such habitat caused by fishing. The Council is proposing these actions to support the objectives of the Council’s Spiny Lobster, Queen Conch, Reef Fish, and Coral FMPs. The intended effect of these proposed actions is to achieve optimum yield in the fisheries and provide social and economic benefits associated with maintaining healthy fishery stocks.

DATES: The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) requires each Regional Fishery Management Council to submit any FMP or amendment to NMFS for review and approval, disapproval, or partial approval. The Magnuson-Stevens Act also requires that NMFS, upon receiving a plan or amendment, publish an announcement in the Federal Register notifying the public that the plan or amendment is available for review and comment. The amendment evaluates the benefits and impacts of a number of alternatives to address the following general categories of actions: (1) Defining fishery management units (FMUs) and sub-units; (2) specifying biological reference points and stock status determination criteria; (3) regulating fishing mortality; (4) rebuilding overfished fisheries; (5) achieving the Magnuson-Stevens Act bycatch mandates; and (6) achieving the Magnuson-Stevens Act EFH mandates. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Fishery Management Units The amendment proposes to re-define the FMUs and sub-units in the Queen Conch, Reef Fish, and Coral FMPs. The amendment proposes to redefine select FMUs to represent those species present in sufficient numbers in the U.S. EEZ to warrant inclusion in Council FMPs, retain select species in FMUs for data PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 35053 collection only, and define or modify FMU sub-units to include species that are best managed together or as a unit. Biological Reference Points and Stock Status Criteria For all managed species (or FMU subunits), with the exception of those species that would be included in a data collection only category, the amendment proposes to establish or revise values such as maximum sustainable yield (MSY), optimum yield, fishing mortality rate and biomass level ratios, minimum stock size threshold, maximum fishing mortality threshold, and define limit and target control rules. Rebuilding Strategies The amendment describes management strategies to rebuild those stocks considered to be overfished, or to protect stocks from becoming overfished. The rebuilding schedules are designed to rebuild these stocks to their biomass at MSY (BMSY) within specified time frames. To achieve these goals, the Council is proposing actions to achieve immediate reductions in fishing mortality including closed seasons and areas, gear restrictions, and administrative actions to foster the development of consistent regulations in state and Federal waters. Standardized Bycatch Reporting Methodology The amendment proposes several actions to improve U.S. Caribbean bycatch data collection for fisheries of the region including modifying trip tickets used by the local governments to incorporate bycatch data fields. In addition, management measures are proposed to further reduce bycatch. Essential Fish Habitat The amendment describes, identifies, and designates EFH and EFH-HAPCs for managed stocks, and proposes management actions to minimize to the extent practicable adverse effects on such habitat caused by fishing. A proposed rule that would implement measures outlined in the amendment has been received from the Council. In accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Act, NMFS is evaluating the proposed rule to determine whether it is consistent with the FMP, the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and other applicable law. If that determination is affirmative, NMFS will publish the proposed rule in the Federal Register for public review and comment.

14 CFR Part 39

[Docket No. FAA-2005-21470; Directorate Identifier 2003-NM-45-AD]
RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10, DC-
10-10F, DC-10-15, DC-10-30 and DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10) Airplanes; 
Model DC-10-40 and DC-10-40F Airplanes; and Model MD-11 and MD-11F 
Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) 
for certain McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10, DC-10-10F, DC-10-15, DC-
10-30 and DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10) airplanes; Model DC-10-40 and 
DC-10-40F airplanes; and Model MD-11 and MD-11F airplanes. This 
proposed AD would require for certain airplanes, modifying the thrust 
reverser command wiring of the number 2 engine. For certain other 
airplanes, this proposed AD would require modifying the thrust reverser 
system wiring from the flight compartment to engines 1, 2, and 3 thrust 
reversers. This proposed AD would also require installing thrust 
reverser locking systems on certain airplanes. This proposed AD is 
prompted by a determination that the thrust reverser systems on these 
McDonnell Douglas airplanes do not adequately preclude unwanted 
deployment of a thrust reverser. We are proposing this AD to prevent an 
unwanted deployment of a thrust reverser during flight, which could 
result in reduced controllability of the airplane.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by August 15, 2005.

Discussion

    In 1992, the FAA issued a document titled ``Criteria for Assessing 
Transport Turbojet Fleet Thrust Reverser Safety.'' This document is 
based upon the premise that no failure of thrust reverser components 
anticipated to occur in-service should prevent continued safe flight 
and landing of an airplane. In order to comply with the criteria in the 
document, Boeing has developed a modification that increases the level 
of safety of the thrust reverser system by incorporating wire 
modifications on McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10, DC-10-10F, DC-10-15, 
DC-10-30 and DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10) airplanes; Model DC-10-40 
and DC-10-40F airplanes; and Model MD-11 and MD-11F airplanes; and by 
installing thrust reverser interlocks on Model DC-10-40 and DC-10-40F 
airplanes. Based upon the Boeing safety evaluations, we have determined 
that the existing thrust reverser systems on these McDonnell

[[Page 35050]]

Douglas airplanes do not adequately preclude unwanted deployment of a 
thrust reverser. Such unwanted deployment of a thrust reverser during 
flight could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
    This is the third in a series of planned rulemaking actions that 
will encompass the entire fleet of McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10, 
DC-10-10F, DC-10-15, DC-10-30 and DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10) 
airplanes; Model DC-10-40 and DC-10-40F airplanes; and Model MD-11 and 
MD-11F airplanes. This rulemaking action would be the final planned 
action and would complete the FAA's review of these models based on the 
1992 ``Criteria for Assessing Transport Turbojet Fleet Thrust Reverser 
Safety'' for McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10, DC-10-10F, DC-10-15, DC-
10-30 and DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10) airplanes; Model DC-10-40 and 
DC-10-40F airplanes; and Model MD-11 and MD-11F airplanes.

Other Related Rulemaking

    We have previously issued AD 2001-05-10, amendment 39-12147 (66 FR 
15785, March 21, 2001), applicable to all McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10 
and MD-11 series airplanes, and KC-10A (military) airplanes. That AD 
requires installation of thrust reverser interlocks on certain 
airplanes, inspections of the thrust reverser systems to detect 
discrepancies on certain other airplanes, and corrective actions, if 
necessary. The actions required by paragraphs (c) and (i) of AD 2001-
05-10 are done in accordance with McDonnell Douglas Alert Service 
Bulletin DC10-78A057, Revision 01, dated February 18, 1999.
    We have also previously issued AD 2001-17-19, amendment 39-12410 
(66 FR 44950, August 27, 2001), applicable to all McDonnell Douglas 
Model DC-10 series airplanes, and KC-10A and KDC-10 (military) 
airplanes. That AD requires certain modifications of the thrust 
reverser control and indication system and wiring on each engine. The 
actions required by paragraph (a) of AD 2001-17-19 are done in 
accordance with McDonnell Douglas Service Bulletin DC10-78-060, dated 
December 17, 1999.

Relevant Service Information

    We have reviewed Boeing Service Bulletin DC10-78-066, Revision 01, 
dated November 30, 2001 (for Model DC-10-10, DC-10-10F, DC-10-15, DC-
10-30 and DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10) airplanes); and Boeing Service 
Bulletin DC10-78-067, dated October 30, 2002 (for Model DC-10-40 and 
DC-10-40F airplanes). These service bulletins describe procedures for 
modifying the thrust reverser command wiring of the number 2 engine, 
located in the aft fuselage/pylon area, to provide wire separation. The 
modification includes installing new tubes, revising the wiring, and 
routing the wiring as specified in the service bulletins.
    Boeing Service Bulletin DC10-78-067 also specifies prior or 
concurrent accomplishment of the following service bulletins:

    Accomplishing the actions specified in the service information is 
intended to adequately address the unsafe condition.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD

    We have evaluated all pertinent information and identified an 
unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on other airplanes 
of this same type design. Therefore, we are proposing this AD, which 
would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service 
information described previously, except as discussed under 
``Differences Between the Proposed AD and Service Information.''
    Although AD 2001-05-10 and AD 2001-17-19 already provide certain

[[Page 35051]]

thrust reverser safety enhancements, this proposed AD is necessary to 
ensure that failure of a thrust reverser component would not prevent 
safe flight and landing.

Differences Between the Proposed AD and Service Information

    Boeing Service Bulletin DC10-78-067, dated October 30, 2002, 
specifies that McDonnell Douglas Service Bulletin DC10-78-064, June 24, 
2003, be done prior to or concurrently with Boeing Service Bulletin 
DC10-78-067. We have determined that the installation of the thrust 
reverser locking systems specified in McDonnell Douglas Service 
Bulletin DC10-78-064 may be done after accomplishing the actions 
specified Boeing Service Bulletin DC10-78-067 as long as the actions in 
both service bulletins are done within 60 months. We have coordinated 
this difference with the airplane manufacturer.

Costs of Compliance

    There are about 612 airplanes of the affected designs in the 
worldwide fleet. This proposed AD would affect about 245 airplanes of 
U.S. registry. The following tables provide the estimated costs for 
U.S. operators to comply with this proposed AD, for the applicable 
actions, at an average hourly labor rate of $65.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority.
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701, ``General 
requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within 
the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition 
that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    We have determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not 
have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship 
between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution 
of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify that the proposed 
regulation:
    1. Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 
12866;
    2. Is not a ``significant rule'' under the DOT Regulatory Policies 
and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and
    3. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with this proposed AD. See the ADDRESSES section for a location 
to examine the regulatory evaluation.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

    Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Safety.

The Proposed Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

    1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

    2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new 
airworthiness directive (AD):


[[Page 35052]]


McDonnell Douglas: Docket No. FAA-2005-21470; Directorate Identifier 
2003-NM-45-AD.

Comments Due Date

    (a) The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) must receive 
comments on this AD action by August 15, 2005.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to airplanes, certificated in any category, 
as listed in Table 1 of this AD.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD was prompted by a determination that the thrust 
reverser systems on these McDonnell Douglas airplanes do not 
adequately preclude unwanted deployment of a thrust reverser. We are 
issuing this AD to prevent an unwanted deployment of a thrust 
reverser during flight, which could result in reduced 
controllability of the airplane.
