Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register on November 1, 2007 (72 FR 61796). The error resulted in an error in an airplane series number identified in Table 2 of the AD. This AD applies to all Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, and A340-600 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive detailed visual inspections for cracking of the LH (left hand) and RH (right hand) wing MLG (main landing gear) rib 6 aft bearing lugs, and repair or replacement of the MLG rib 6 fitting, if necessary.

DATES:

Effective November 16, 2007.

ADDRESSES:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On October 24, 2007, the FAA issued AD 2007-22-10, amendment 39-15246 (72 FR 61796, November 1, 2007), for all Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, and A340-600 series airplanes. The AD requires repetitive detailed visual inspections for cracking of the LH (left hand) and RH (right hand) wing MLG (main landing gear) rib 6 aft bearing lugs, and repair or replacement of the MLG rib 6 fitting, if necessary.

As published, Table 2 of the AD states that certain repetitive inspection intervals apply to Model “A300-300 series airplanes, except WV27.” That sentence contains a typographical error and, instead, should state that those repetitive inspection intervals apply to Model “A340-300 series airplanes, except WV27.”

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 November 16, 2007.
