AD NUMBER: 2008-14-08
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-14-08
SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 747 airplanes
This AD requires repetitive inspections for broken or missing
fasteners in the single-row hinge fasteners of the forward and aft
cargo doors, and related investigative/corrective actions.
This AD results from reports of broken and missing fasteners in
the hinges of the forward and aft cargo doors in both the body
hinge segments and the door hinge segments.
We are issuing this AD to detect and correct broken or missing
fasteners in the hinge segments with a single fastener row, which
could lead to opening of the cargo door during flight and result in
rapid decompression of the airplane.
