I VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:11 Jun 15, 2006 Jkt 208001 SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Boeing Model 737–100, –200, –200C, –300, –400, and –500 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires initial and repetitive inspections of the elevator tab assembly to find any damage or discrepancy; and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD adds certain new inspections and removes certain existing inspections. This AD results from additional reports of airframe vibrations of the elevator tab during flight on airplanes inspected per the existing AD; subsequently, considerable damage was done to the elevator tab, elevator, and horizontal stabilizer. In several incidents, a portion of the elevator tab separated from the airplane. We are issuing this AD to prevent excessive in-flight vibrations of the elevator tab, which could lead to loss of the elevator tab and consequent loss of controllability of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective July 3, 2006. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of July 3, 2006. On February 19, 2002 (67 FR 1603, January 14, 2002), the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of Boeing Service Bulletin 737–55A1070, Revision 1, including appendices A, B, and C, dated May 10, 2001. We must receive any comments on this AD by August 15, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: Discussion On December 28, 2001, we issued AD 2002–01–01, amendment 39–12592 (67 FR 1603, January 14, 2002). That AD applies to certain Boeing Model 737– 100, –200, –200C, –300, –400, and –500 series airplanes. That AD requires initial and repetitive inspections of the elevator tab assembly to find any damage or discrepancy; and corrective actions if necessary. That AD resulted from several reports indicating highfrequency airframe vibrations of the elevator tab during flight. The actions specified in that AD are intended to prevent excessive in-flight vibrations of the elevator tab, which could lead to loss of the elevator tab and consequent loss of controllability of the airplane. Actions Since AD was Issued Since we issued AD 2002–01–01, we have received additional reports of airframe vibrations of the elevator tab during flight on airplanes inspected per E:\FR\FM\16JNR1.SGM 16JNR1
