Federal Aviation Administration June 15, 2011 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 767 Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-14698
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD would require modification of the fluid drain path in the leading edge area of the wing. This proposed AD was prompted by a design review following a ground fire incident and reports of flammable fluid leaks from the wing leading edge area onto the engine exhaust area. We are proposing this AD to prevent flammable fluid from leaking onto the engine exhaust nozzle which could result in a fire.
