AD NUMBER: 2006-18-05
MANUFACTURER: McDonnell Douglas
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-18-05
SUMMARY: The FAA is
superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies
to certain McDonnell Douglas Model DC-9-10, DC-9-20, DC-9-30,
DC-9-40, and DC-9-50 series airplanes.
That AD currently requires a one-time inspection at a certain
disconnect panel in the left forward cargo compartment to find
contamination of electrical connectors and to determine if a
dripshield is installed over the disconnect panel, and corrective
actions if necessary.
This new AD revises the applicability of the existing AD by
removing certain airplanes and adding others. This AD results from
a report of electrical arcing that resulted in a fire.
We are issuing this AD to prevent contamination of certain
electrical connectors, which could cause electrical arcing and
consequent fire on the airplane.
