Lynden Air Cargo states that the service information was not made available by the Type Certificate holder until December 18, 2007. • Comment about the conclusion in the Regulatory Evaluation (located in the docket) that the NPRM does not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska. Lynden Air Cargo states that its military operations in Alaska account for some 4.5 million pounds of lift per year. • Review service difficulty reports to validate the presence of an unsafe condition relating to the affected airplanes. Lynden Air Cargo states that it does not appear that the requirements of the NPRM are based upon any unsafe condition related to a particular type design. It is our intent to address the identified unsafe condition in a timely manner with minimum disruption to industry. We encourage interested parties to continue to evaluate the NPRM and to submit additional comments with more specific details concerning issues that we may need to evaluate before finalizing decisions on the proposal. We have determined that such input may be beneficial before adoption of a final rule. As a result, we have decided to reopen the comment period for 45 days to receive additional comments.

proposed requirements for revising the FAA-approved maintenance 
inspection program to include inspections that will give no less than 
the required damage tolerance rating for each structural significant 
item (SSI), doing repetitive inspections to detect cracks of all SSIs, 
and repairing cracked structure. This reopening of the comment period 
is necessary to provide additional opportunity for public comment on

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    We proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 with a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) for an AD for all Lockheed Model 382, 382B, 382E, 
382F, and 382G series airplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal 
Register on November 14, 2007 (72 FR 64005). The NPRM proposed to 
require revising the FAA-approved maintenance inspection program to 
include inspections that will give no less than the required damage 
tolerance rating for each structural significant item (SSI), doing 
repetitive inspections to detect cracks of all SSIs, and repairing 
cracked structure. 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, we have received one comment. Lynden Air 
Cargo requests an additional 45 days to comment on the NPRM. Lynden Air 
Cargo states that it needs more time to:
     Review Lockheed Martin Model 382, 382B, 382E, 382F, and 
382G Series Aircraft Service Manual Publication (SMP), Supplemental 
Structural Inspection Document, SMP 515-C-SSID, Change 1, dated 
September 10, 2007 (referred to the NPRM as the appropriate source of 
service information for accomplishing the proposed actions). Lynden Air 
Cargo states that the service information was not made available by the 
Type Certificate holder until December 18, 2007.
     Comment about the conclusion in the Regulatory Evaluation 
(located in the docket) that the NPRM does not affect intrastate 
aviation in Alaska. Lynden Air Cargo states that its military 
operations in Alaska account for some 4.5 million pounds of lift per 
year.
     Review service difficulty reports to validate the presence 
of an unsafe condition relating to the affected airplanes. Lynden Air 
Cargo states that it does not appear that the requirements of the NPRM 
are based upon any unsafe condition related to a particular type 
design.
    It is our intent to address the identified unsafe condition in a 
timely manner with minimum disruption to industry. We encourage 
interested parties to continue to evaluate the NPRM and to submit 
additional comments with more specific details concerning issues that 
we may need to evaluate before finalizing decisions on the proposal. We 
have determined that such input may be beneficial before adoption of a 
final rule. As a result, we have decided to reopen the comment period 
for 45 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 March 31, 2008.
