Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 767 Airplanes
Document Number: E9-30702
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-12-29

We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model 767 airplanes.

This proposed AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent possible sources of ignition in a fuel tank caused by electrical fault or uncommanded dry operation of the main tank boost pumps and center auxiliary tank override and jettison pumps. An ignition source in the fuel tank could result in a fire or an explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
