AD NUMBER: 2007-25-11
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-25-11
SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority ofanother
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Two events have been
reported of Fokker 100 (F.28 Mk.0100) aircraft, where the Nose
Landing Gear (NLG) failed to extend in the normal mode and problems
were experienced to open the NLG doors, almost preventing extension
of the NLG in the emergency (alternate) mode. Subsequent
investigation and tests have shown that the friction ofthe bearing
in the roller of the NLG Door Uplock Bracket Assembly is high,
causing increased resistance in the mechanical system that unlocks
the NLG doors.
This condition, if not corrected, may result in a NLG up
landing, which is considered a hazardous event.
We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe
condition on these products.
