AD NUMBER: 2008-08-24
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-08-24
SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 737-600,
-700,-700C, -800, and -900 series airplanes.
This AD requires replacing the drain tube assemblies and support
clamps on the aft fairing of the engine struts. This AD results
from reports of failure of the drain tube assembly and clamp on the
aft fairings of an engine strut.
We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the drain tube
assemblies and clamps on the aft fairings of the of the engine
struts. Such a failure could allow leaked flammable fluids in the
drain systems to discharge on to the heat shields of the aft
fairings of the engine struts, which could result in an undetected
and uncontrollable fire.
