AD NUMBER: 2006-15-17
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-15-17
FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker
Model F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes.
This AD requires modification of the wiring distribution of the
alternating current bus transfer power system and the right-hand
and left-hand windshield anti-icing system, as necessary.
This AD results from a report of electrical sparks coming out of
the flight deck from a panel behind the left seat.
We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the sliding window
heating element(s), due to electrical overload, which could result
in smoke and fire in the cockpit.
