Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-27529
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-11-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new Airworthiness Directive (AD) for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0100 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) indicating that certain wing fuel tank access panels are subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). This proposed AD would require replacement of affected access panels and modification of the coamings of the associated access holes. We are proposing this AD to prevent the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-27310
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-11-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 777-300ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that certain galley tripod mount assemblies were not connected to the tie rods in the overhead support structure. This proposed AD would require an inspection of certain galleys for the presence of the hardware that connects the tripod mount assembly to the tie rods in the overhead support structure, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
