Amendment to Jet Route and Colored Federal Airways; Alaska
This action amends Jet Route 510 (J-510), and Colored Federal Airways Amber 2 (A-2), Amber 15 (A-15), and Green 8 (G-8), Alaska. Specifically, the FAA is re-designating J-510 as J-512 because of duplication with a Canadian Jet Route number, causing problems with the Flight Data processors during route validation at the Anchorage Air Route Traffic Control Center. Additionally, portions of A-2, and A-15, and G-8 are discontinuous between fixes, causing flight processing software problems, and will be re-designated.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747 Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 747 airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections for any cracking of the fuselage skin in section 41 of the airplane, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from a report of fatigue cracks found in the skin in section 41 of the fuselage, on an in-service Model 747 airplane. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracks at the fastener rows of the fuselage skin in section 41, which could join together and cause a loss of structural integrity and rapid decompression of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 767 Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 767 airplanes. This AD requires repetitive detailed and high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections of the station (STA) 1809.5 bulkhead for cracking and corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from fatigue cracks found in the forward outer chord and horizontal inner chord at STA 1809.5. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the bulkhead structure at STA 1809.5, which could result in failure of the bulkhead structure for carrying the flight loads of the horizontal stabilizer, and consequent loss of controllability of the airplane.
