Therefore, we have determined that the public was not provided adequate opportunity to submit comments on the NPRM. As a result, we have decided to reopen the comment period for 30 days to receive additional comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 with a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for an AD for certain Airbus Model 
A330 airplanes and A340-200 and -300 series airplanes. The NPRM was 
published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2007 (72 FR 55108). 
The NPRM proposed to require the inspection of the fuselage to identify 
possible permanent skin repairs and permanent longitudinal lap joint 
repairs and to apply the associated corrective actions. The NPRM action 
invites comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, 
and energy aspects of the proposed AD.

Actions Since NPRM was Issued

    Since we issued the NPRM, the DOT's Docket Management System (DMS) 
was replaced by the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS). FDMS is a 
government-wide, electronic docket management system, which contains 
the public dockets and is the method used for submitting comments on 
the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of 
proposed rulemaking actions. However, due to the service disruption 
caused by the transition from DOT's DMS to the FDMS, the docket 
material was not posted on the FDMS until November 1, 2007. Therefore, 
we have determined that the public was not provided adequate 
opportunity to submit comments on the NPRM. As a result, we have 
decided to reopen the comment period for 30 days to receive additional 
comments.
    No part of the regulatory information has been changed; therefore, 
the NPRM is not republished in the Federal Register.

Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments on this AD action by December 20, 2007.

    Issued in Renton, Washington, on November 8, 2007.
