The Board of Governors, however, intends to issue similar notices at least sixty days prior to the elimination of check operations at some other Reserve Bank offices, as described in the September 2004 Federal Register document. Administrative Procedure Act The Board has not followed the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553(b) relating to notice and public participation in connection with the adoption of this final rule. The revisions to the appendix are technical in nature, and the routing symbol revisions are required by the statutory and regulatory definitions of ‘‘check-processing region.’’ Because there is no substantive change on which to seek public input, the Board has determined that the § 553(b) notice and comment procedures are unnecessary. Paperwork Reduction Act In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506; 5 CFR 1320 Appendix A.1), the Board has reviewed the final rule under authority delegated to the Board by the Office of Management and Budget. These technical amendments to appendix A of Regulation CC will delete the reference to the Portland branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and reassign the routing symbols listed under that office to the Seattle branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. The depository institutions that are located in the affected check processing regions and that include the routing numbers in their disclosure statements would be required to notify customers of the resulting change in availability under § 229.18(e). However, because all paperwork collection procedures associated with Regulation CC already are in place, the Board anticipates that no additional burden will be imposed as a result of this rulemaking.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing transport category airplanes listed above. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracks of the upper surface of the aft lower spar web of the inboard and outboard struts, as applicable; and repetitive inspections for cracks of the upper surface of the intermediate web bay of the aft lower spar. This AD also requires repetitive inspections and torque checks of the bolts common to the aft lower spar chords and the fitting of the rear engine mount bulkhead for missing, loose, or fractured bolts, as applicable; and corrective action, if necessary. This AD is prompted by reports of cracking in the aft lower spar web and reports of missing and fractured bolts. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking of the aft lower spar web, and to prevent missing, loose, or fractured bolts common to the aft lower spar chords and the fitting of the rear engine mount bulkhead, which could result in the loss of the aft lower spar load path and reduced structural capability of the pylon, which may result in the separation of the engine from the airplane. This AD becomes effective September 16, 2005. The incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in the AD is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of September 16, 2005. ADDRESSES: For service information identified in this AD, contact Boeing Commercial Airplanes, P.O. Box 3707, Seattle, Washington 98124–2207.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Candice Gerretsen, Aerospace Engineer, Airframe Branch, ANM–120S, FAA, Seattle Aircraft Certification Office, 1601 Lind Avenue, SW., Renton, Washington 98055–4056; telephone (425) 917–6428; fax (425) 917–6590. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 with an AD for certain Boeing transport category airplanes. That action, published in the Federal Register on February 10, 2005 (70 FR 7052), proposed to require repetitive inspections for cracks of the upper surface of the aft lower spar web of the inboard and outboard struts, as applicable; and repetitive inspections for cracks of the upper surface of the intermediate web bay of the aft lower spar. That action also proposed to require repetitive inspections and torque checks of the bolts common to the aft lower spar chords and the fitting of the rear engine mount bulkhead for missing, loose, or fractured bolts, as applicable; and corrective action, if necessary. The commenter contends that retired airplanes are not included in the applicability of the proposed AD and states that strut assemblies may be interchanged between airplanes. We do not agree to revise the applicability. Retired airplanes are included by variable number in Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 747–54A2212, dated May 1, 2003 (referenced as the appropriate source of information for the applicability of the proposed AD). Also, it is our policy to not write the applicability of ADs against a part of the airframe, such as the strut. Section 39.3 (‘‘Definition of airworthiness directives’’) of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 39.3) specifies that airworthiness directives apply to the following products: aircraft, aircraft engine, propeller, or appliance (which is not part of the airframe). We have not changed the final rule in this regard. Request To Revise Applicability One commenter requests that the applicability be revised to read: Request To Advise Operators That Strut Assemblies Are Interchangeable The same commenter requests that a clause be added to advise operators that the strut assemblies are interchangeable and that, if a strut assembly is installed on another airplane, that airplane must be evaluated to determine if it is applicable to the proposed AD. We agree that the strut assembly is an interchangeable part. However, we do not agree to revise the final rule to advise operators that the strut assemblies are interchangeable because the strut is a serialized part that can be tracked. Operators should note that they are responsible for maintaining the configuration of its airplanes, especially in an area affected by an AD. As required by section 39.17 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 39.17), for airplanes that have been modified, altered, or repaired so that the accomplishment of the requirements of this final rule is affected, the operator must request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (q) of this AD. This AD applies to engine strut assemblies installed on Boeing Model 747–100, –100B, –100B SUD, –200B, –200C, –200F, and –300 series airplanes, and Model 747–SP and 747 SR series airplanes; certificated in any category; equipped with Pratt and Whitney Model JT9D–3 and –7 series engines. Request To Define Airplane Groups by Pylon Web Thickness One commenter requests that the airplane groups be defined solely by pylon web thickness. The commenter states that the groups identified in the Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. We have considered the comments that have been submitted on the proposed AD. 47087 service bulletin do not reflect its airplane configuration. The commenter notes that it has Group 1 airplanes with 0.032-inch pylon webs, Group 3 airplanes with 0.025-inch pylon webs, and some airplanes with mixed 0.025inch pylon webs and 0.032-inch pylon webs. We acknowledge that the service bulletin may not reflect an operator’s current aircraft configuration because of post-delivery modifications. Since the groupings are not only defined by web thickness but also by the location of web stiffeners and the web material; we do not agree to revise the final rule to define airplane groups by pylon web thickness. Operators are responsible for maintaining the configuration of its airplanes. If the configuration of an airplane has been changed in an area affected by this final rule and the accomplishment of the requirements of this final rule is affected, operators must request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (q) of this AD as required by 14 CFR 39.19. Explanation of Change to Applicability We have revised the applicability of the proposed AD to identify model designations as published in the most recent type certificate data sheet for the affected models. Conclusion We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the comments that have been submitted, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the change described previously. We have determined that this change will neither increase the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD. Costs of Compliance There are about 244 airplanes of the affected design in the worldwide fleet. This AD will affect about 82 airplanes of U.S. registry. The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. operators to comply with this AD.

Bolt inspection .............................................. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. 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. We are issuing this rulemaking 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. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation. Regulatory Findings We have determined that this AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will 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 this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under 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.

The applicable FAA Forms are identified as FAA Forms 8260–3, 8260–4, 8260–5 and 8260–15A. Materials incorporated by reference are available for examination or purchase as stated above. The large number of SIAPs and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums, their complex nature, and the need for a special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums but refer to their depiction on charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the complete description of each SIAP and/ or Weather Takeoff Minimums contained in FAA form documents is unnecessary. The provisions of this amendment state the affected CFR sections, with the types and effective dates of the SIAPs and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums. This amendment also identifies the airport, its location, the procedure identification and the amendment number. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of each separate SIAP and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums as contained in the transmittal. Some SIAP and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums amendments may have been previously issued by the FAA in a Flight Data Center (FDC) Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) as an emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The circumstances which created the need for some SIAP, and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums amendments may require making them E:\FR\FM\12AUR1.SGM 12AUR1

Series Engines

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 
certain Boeing transport category airplanes listed above. This AD 
requires repetitive inspections for cracks of the upper surface of the 
aft lower spar web of the inboard and outboard struts, as applicable; 
and repetitive inspections for cracks of the upper surface of the 
intermediate web bay of the aft lower spar. This AD also requires 
repetitive inspections and torque checks of the bolts common to the aft 
lower spar chords and the fitting of the rear engine mount bulkhead for 
missing, loose, or fractured bolts, as applicable; and corrective 
action, if necessary. This AD is prompted by reports of cracking in the 
aft lower spar web and reports of missing and fractured bolts. We are 
issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking of the aft lower spar 
web, and to prevent missing, loose, or fractured bolts common to the 
aft lower spar chords and the fitting of the rear engine mount 
bulkhead, which could result in the loss of the aft lower spar load 
path and reduced structural capability of the pylon, which may result 
in the separation of the engine from the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective September 16, 2005.
    The incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in 
the AD is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of 
September 16, 2005.

ADDRESSES: For service information identified in this AD, contact 
Boeing Commercial Airplanes, P.O. Box 3707, Seattle, Washington 98124-

917-6428; fax (425) 917-6590.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 
with an AD for certain Boeing transport category airplanes. That 
action, published in the Federal Register on February 10, 2005 (70 FR 
7052), proposed to require repetitive inspections for cracks of the 
upper surface of the aft lower spar web of the inboard and outboard 
struts, as applicable; and repetitive inspections for cracks of the 
upper surface of the intermediate web bay of the aft lower spar. That 
action also proposed to require repetitive inspections and torque 
checks of the bolts common to the aft lower spar chords and the fitting 
of the rear engine mount bulkhead for missing, loose, or fractured 
bolts, as applicable; and corrective action, if necessary.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the 
development of this AD. We have considered the comments that have been 
submitted on the proposed AD.

Request To Revise Applicability

    One commenter requests that the applicability be revised to read:

    This AD applies to engine strut assemblies installed on Boeing 
Model 747-100, -100B, -100B SUD, -200B, -200C, -200F, and -300 
series airplanes, and Model 747-SP and 747 SR series airplanes; 
certificated in any category; equipped with Pratt and Whitney Model 
JT9D-3 and -7 series engines.

    The commenter contends that retired airplanes are not included in 
the applicability of the proposed AD and states that strut assemblies 
may be interchanged between airplanes.
    We do not agree to revise the applicability. Retired airplanes are 
included by variable number in Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 747-
54A2212, dated May 1, 2003 (referenced as the appropriate source of 
information for the applicability of the proposed AD). Also, it is our 
policy to not write the applicability of ADs against a part of the 
airframe, such as the strut. Section 39.3 (``Definition of 
airworthiness directives'') of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 
39.3) specifies that airworthiness directives apply to the following 
products: aircraft, aircraft engine, propeller, or appliance (which is 
not part of the airframe). We have not changed the final rule in this 
regard.

Request To Advise Operators That Strut Assemblies Are Interchangeable

    The same commenter requests that a clause be added to advise 
operators that the strut assemblies are interchangeable and that, if a 
strut assembly is installed on another airplane, that airplane must be 
evaluated to determine if it is applicable to the proposed AD.
    We agree that the strut assembly is an interchangeable part. 
However, we do not agree to revise the final rule to advise operators 
that the strut assemblies are interchangeable because the strut is a 
serialized part that can be tracked. Operators should note that they 
are responsible for maintaining the configuration of its airplanes, 
especially in an area affected by an AD. As required by section 39.17 
of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 39.17), for airplanes that 
have been modified, altered, or repaired so that the accomplishment of 
the requirements of this final rule is affected, the operator must 
request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to 
paragraph (q) of this AD.

Request To Define Airplane Groups by Pylon Web Thickness

    One commenter requests that the airplane groups be defined solely 
by pylon web thickness. The commenter states that the groups identified 
in the service bulletin do not reflect its airplane configuration. The 
commenter notes that it has Group 1 airplanes with 0.032-inch pylon 
webs, Group 3 airplanes with 0.025-inch pylon webs, and some airplanes 
with mixed 0.025-inch pylon webs and 0.032-inch pylon webs.
    We acknowledge that the service bulletin may not reflect an 
operator's current aircraft configuration because of post-delivery 
modifications. Since the groupings are not only defined by web 
thickness but also by the location of web stiffeners and the web 
material; we do not agree to revise the final rule to define airplane 
groups by pylon web thickness. Operators are responsible for 
maintaining the configuration of its airplanes. If the configuration of 
an airplane has been changed in an area affected by this final rule and 
the accomplishment of the requirements of this final rule is affected, 
operators must request approval for an alternative method of compliance 
according to paragraph (q) of this AD as required by 14 CFR 39.19.

Explanation of Change to Applicability

    We have revised the applicability of the proposed AD to identify 
model designations as published in the most recent type certificate 
data sheet for the affected models.

Conclusion

    We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the 
comments that have been submitted, and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD with the change described 
previously. We have determined that this change will neither increase 
the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    There are about 244 airplanes of the affected design in the 
worldwide fleet. This AD will affect about 82 airplanes of U.S. 
registry. The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. 
operators to comply with this AD.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. 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.
    We are issuing this rulemaking 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 AD will not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will 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 this AD:
    (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive 
Order 12866;
    (2) Is not a ``significant rule'' under 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 AD. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to 
examine the regulatory evaluation.
