AD NUMBER: 2008-02-05
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-02-05
SUMMARY: The FAA is
adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing
Model 777-200 and -300 series airplanes.
This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual to provide
the flightcrew with new ground procedures for shedding core ice
during long taxi periods in freezing fog with visibility of 300
meters or less.
For airplanes unable to perform the shedding procedure after
prolonged taxiing in freezing fog with visibility of 300 meters or
less, this AD requires certain investigative and corrective
This AD results from reports of engine surges and internal
engine damage due to ice accumulation during extended idle thrust
operation in ground fog icing conditions.
We are issuing this AD to prevent internal engine damage due to
ice accumulation and shedding, which could cause a shutdown of both
engines, and result in a forced landing of the airplane.
