Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

This document corrects an inadvertent error that appeared in airworthiness directive (AD) 2002-12-13 that was published in the Federal Register on June 26, 2002 (67 FR 42985). The inadvertent error resulted in reference to an incorrect address for service information. This AD is applicable to all Boeing Model 727 series airplanes. This AD requires a review of maintenance records or a one-time test to determine if elevator hinge support ribs on the trailing edge of the horizontal stabilizer are made from a certain material, and follow-on repetitive inspections for corrosion or cracking of the elevator hinge support ribs, if necessary. For airplanes with the affected ribs installed, this AD eventually requires replacement of all affected ribs with new, improved ribs.

DATES:

Effective July 31, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2002-12-13, amendment 39-12785, applicable to all Boeing Model 727 series airplanes, was published in the Federal Register on June 26, 2002 (67 FR 42985). That AD requires a review of maintenance records or a one-time test to determine if elevator hinge support ribs on the trailing edge of the horizontal stabilizer are made from a certain material, and follow-on repetitive inspections for corrosion or cracking of the elevator hinge support ribs, if necessary. For airplanes with the affected ribs installed, this AD eventually requires replacement of all affected ribs with new, improved ribs.

As published, paragraph (h) of that AD contained an incorrect address for obtaining copies of service information. Paragraph (h) of that AD identifies Airbus Industrie, 1 Rond Point Maurice Bellonte, 31707 Blagnac Cedex, France, as the appropriate address for obtaining copies of service information. However, the correct address is Boeing Start Printed Page 51070Commercial Airplane Group, P.O. Box 3707, Seattle, Washington 98124-2207.

Since no other part of the regulatory information has been changed, the final rule is not being republished in the Federal Register.

The effective date of this AD remains July 31, 2002.

[Corrected]

On page 42989 of AD 2002-12-13, in the third column of paragraph (h) on the fourth line following the table, correct the sentence, “Copies may be obtained from Airbus Industrie, 1 Rond Point Maurice Bellonte, 31707 Blagnac Cedex, France,” to read “Copies may be obtained from Boeing Commercial Airplane Group, P.O. Box 3707, Seattle, Washington 98124-2207.”
