Discussion

On December 27, 2004, FAA issued AD 2005-01-04, Amendment 39-13928 (70 FR 1169, January 6, 2005), which applies to certain Raytheon Aircraft Company 90, 99, 100, 200, and 300 series airplanes. That AD requires you to check the airplane maintenance records from January 1, 1994, up to and including the effective date of that AD, for any MIL-H-6000B fuel hose replacements on the affected airplanes.

On January 20, 2005, FAA made corrections to that AD through Federal Register publication (70 FR 3871). That AD correction changed the model number C90B in the applicability section to C90A.

Need for This Action

For clarity purposes, FAA is incorporating the original AD publication and the correction into one document to help eliminate any confusion. Consequently, we are re-issuing the AD in its entirety.
