AD NUMBER: 2008-09-06
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-09-06 SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information
(MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to
identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product.
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Subsequent to accidents
involving Fuel Tank System explosions in flight * * * and on
ground, * * * Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88 (SFAR88) * **
required a safety review of the aircraft Fuel Tank System * * * * *
* * * Fuel Airworthiness Limitations are items arising from a
systems safety analysis that have been shown to have failure
mode(s) associated with an 'unsafe condition' * * * These are
identified in Failure Conditions for which an unacceptable
probability of ignition risk could exist if specific tasks and/or
practices are not performed in accordance with the manufacturers'
requirements. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct
the unsafe condition on these products.
