All Model A319, A320, and A321 aircraft; except aircraft with
Airbus Modification 32025 incorporated in production, or Airbus
Service Bulletin A320-57-1118 incorporated in service.
Requirement: Action in accordance with the
requirements of EASA AD 2006-0069-E. Note: Airbus
A318/A319/A320/A321 Non-destructive Testing Manuals 51-90-00
revision dated February 2003, 57-29-03 revision dated February
2005, and 57-29-04 revision dated March 2005, or later EASA
approved revisions, refer.
Compliance: As specified in the Requirement
document, with a revised effective date of 4 April 2006.
This Amendment becomes effective on 4 April 2006.
Background: A report was received of a crack in
the forward lug of the right hand main landing gear support rib 5.
Such cracking could affect the structural integrity of the main
landing gear. Amendment 1 is issued in response to a new EASA AD,
which introduces a repetitive detailed visual inspection to be
performed on a weekly basis. A new crack was recently discovered in
the same affected area on another aircraft. Further investigation
highlighted the need to reduce the interval of the repetitive
inspection of the forward lug of the main landing gear support rib
5, on both left and right hand sides.
