AD NUMBER: 2011-08-03

MANUFACTURER: Airbus Model A340-541 and -642 Airplanes
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2011-08-03

SUMMARY: This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

An operator has reported cracks on the aft hinge FWD [forward] fittings of the NLG [nose landing gear] aft doors (Right Hand (RH) side or Left Hand (LH) side). The cracks extended by approximately 15 millimeters from the upper hole to the edge of the fittings.

Cracks on the NLG aft door fittings, if not corrected, could lead to the loss in flight of the door, possibly resulting in injury to persons on the ground or airplane damages.
