Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
Document Number: E8-28505
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of certain airport property. The sale will include a perpetual navigational easement, precluding the building of any structures. The area is a 28.665-acre parcel of vacant land located east of the airport. The land was acquired via warranty deed dated November 18, 1987, recorded November 23, 1987, in Randolph County, Book No. 246, Page No. 490-491. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to sell the property. The land is not needed for aeronautical use. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of the proceeds from the sale of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with Section 47107(h) of Title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC-9-10, DC-9-20, DC-9-30, DC-9-40, and DC-9-50 Series Airplanes, Equipped With a Tail Cone Evacuation Slide Container Installed in Accordance With Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST735SO
Document Number: E8-27937
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for McDonnell Douglas Model DC-9-10, DC-9-20, DC-9-30, DC-9-40, and DC-9-50 series airplanes, equipped with tail cone evacuation slide containers as specified above. This AD requires modifying the tail cone slide. This AD also requires additional tail cone drops and slide deployments, and repair if necessary. This AD results from several reports of inadvertent tail cone deployments in which the tail cone slide failed to deploy. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the tail cone evacuation slide deploys correctly. Failure of the slide to deploy during an emergency evacuation could result in injury to flightcrew and passengers.
