AD NUMBER: 2007-16-05
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-16-05
SUMMARY: The FAA is
adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model
737-100, -200,-200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes.
This AD requires repetitive inspections for discrepancies of the
elevator tab control rod assemblies and/or damage to the
surrounding structure, and related corrective action.
This AD results from reports indicating loose jam nuts and/or
thread wear at the rod ends on the elevator tab control rod
We are issuing this AD to find and fix discrepancies of the
elevator tab control rod assembly, which could result in excessive
freeplay in the elevator tab control rods.
Such freeplay could cause loss of both load paths, subsequent
elevator tab flutter, and consequent reduced structural integrity
and loss of controllability of the airplane.
