AD: Airbus Airplanes

AD NUMBER: 2017-23-04

PRODUCT: Certain Airbus Model A300 B4-600R series airplanes; Model A300 B4-603, B4-620, and B4-622 airplanes; Model A300 C4- 605R Variant F airplanes; and Model A300 F4-605R airplanes.

ACTION: Final Rule.

SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by a determination that the top stringer joints at rib 18 are an area of uniform stress distribution, which indicates that cracks may develop in adjacent stringers at the same time. This AD requires an inspection of the upper wing skin and top stringer joints, and modification of the stringer joint couplings if necessary.

COST: The FAA estimates that this AD affects 65 airplanes of U.S. registry. The cost of compliance is estimated to be up to $12,685 per aircraft for parts and labor.

DATES: This AD is effective December 20, 2017.
