Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-20358
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-09-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-25-06, which applied to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-200, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. AD 2010-25-06 required repetitive inspections for cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams, and corrective actions if necessary. AD 2010-25-06 also provided for an optional repair, which terminated the repetitive inspections. For airplanes on which a certain repair was done, AD 2010-25-06 also required repetitive inspections for cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD retains the actions required by AD 2010-25-06 and expands the inspection area. This AD was prompted by additional cracking found in areas not covered by the inspections in AD 2010-25-06. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all 328 Support Services GmbH Model 328-100 and -300 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports indicating corrosion on the horizontal stabilizer bearing supports at the contact surface to the horizontal stabilizer rear spar. This AD requires inspections for corrosion and any other damage (i.e., cracking and chafing) of the horizontal stabilizer rear bearing supports, replacement of the affected horizontal stabilizer rear bearing supports if necessary, and modification of the horizontal stabilizer rear spar. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

This AD adds a detailed visual inspection of the key washers and self-locking nuts of the elevator control linkages and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by reports of a disconnect between the elevator lever and control rod and a report indicating that certain revisions of the service information were missing instructions for proper installation of certain key washers. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
