AD NUMBER: 2008-11-13
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-11-13
SUMMARY: The FAA is
adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing
Model 777-200,-200LR, -300, and -300ER series airplanes.
This AD requires revising the Airworthiness limitations (AWLs)
section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness by
incorporating new limitations for fuel tank systems to satisfy
Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 requirements.
This AD also requires the initial performance of certain
repetitive inspections specified in the AWLs to phase in those
inspections, and repair if necessary. This AD results from a design
review of the fuel tank systems.
We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential for ignition
sources inside fuel tanks caused by latent failures, alterations,
repairs, or maintenance actions, which, in combination with
flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and
consequent loss of the airplane.
