Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA– 2012–0104 2011–NM–279–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD.

We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. Discussion We received a report indicating that a fire originated near the first officer’s area, which caused extensive damage to the flight deck. The cause of this incident is unknown. One scenario of the causes being considered is that an electrical fault or short circuit resulted in electrical heating of the low-pressure oxygen hoses in the flight crew oxygen system. This condition, if not corrected, could cause electrical current to pass through the low-pressure oxygen hose internal anti-collapse spring, which can cause the low-pressure oxygen hose to melt or burn, and a consequent oxygenfed fire in the flight compartment. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 777–35A0027, dated December 15, 2011. The service information describes procedures for replacing the low-pressure oxygen hoses with nonconductive low-pressure oxygen hoses in the flight compartment. FAA’s Determination We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. Proposed AD Requirements This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions specified in E:\FR\FM\08FEP1.SGM 08FEP1
