SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-04-16
SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness

The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Corrosion has been
reported beneath the heat shield which is located around the APU
(auxiliary power unit) exhaust outlet.
Such corrosion could result in the fuselage being unable to
sustain horizontal and vertical stabiliser loads. This is
considered as potentially hazardous/catastrophic.

stabilizer might collapse under excessive load, resulting in loss
of control of the airplane.
We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe
