AD: Boeing, McDonnell Douglas

[Note: this happened to a flight deck officer, last month, as one of the new "safe" cockpit doors clobbered him. Fortunately, there was no effect on the flight, and the officer was not badly injured --ed.]
AD NUMBER: 2003-14-04
MANUFACTURER:
Boeing,McDonnell Douglas
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2003-14-04


SUMMARY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) that is applicable to certain transport category airplanes as listed above. This action requires modification of the reinforced flight deckdoor installed on the airplane. This action is necessary to prevent inadvertent release of the decompression latch and consequent opening of the decompression panel in the flight deck door. If an airplane crewmember is in close proximity to the flight deck door when the decompression panel opens, the decompression panel could hit and injure the crewmember. This action is intended to address the identified unsafe condition.
