US Airways, fresh from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, is still trying to
find a way to turn a profit. Now, the airline has struck a deal
with the Air Transportation Stabilization Board to restructure the
$1 billion loan it got after coming out of bankruptcy a year ago,
hoping to balance the books.
SUBJECT: Wing Bolts
SUMMARY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness
directive (AD), applicable to all Boeing Model 707 and 720 series
airplanes, that requires inspection of the bolt forward of the wing
front spar upper chord on the overwing support fittings of the
inboard and outboard nacelle struts to verify that BACB30US type
bolts are installed. If any other type of bolt is found, this
amendment requires replacement with a new BACB30US type bolt.
