SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 13, 2005, the FAA issued AD 2005-09-02, amendment 39-14070 (70 FR 21141, April 25, 2005), for all Boeing Model 747 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the top and side panel webs and panel stiffeners of the nose wheel well (NWW), and corrective actions if necessary.

As published, we inadvertently did not specify a certain area for a required Start Printed Page 29941inspection. Where paragraph (i) of the AD specifies “Do a UT inspection of the sidewall panel web for cracks, * * *,” the correct areas to inspect are the top and sidewall panel web. References to the inspection areas are all identified correctly in all other parts of the AD.

No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; therefore, the final rule is not republished in the Federal Register.

The effective date of this AD remains May 10, 2005.
