Start Preamble

AGENCY:

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

ACTION:

Final rule; corrections.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is correcting typographical errors in three existing airworthiness directives (ADs) that were published in the Federal Register on January 8, 2008 (73 FR 1269); January 7, 2008 (73 FR 1052); and January 7, 2008 (73 FR 1055). The errors resulted in incorrect docket numbers. One AD applies to all Viking Air Limited Model (Caribou) DHC-4 and (Caribou) DHC-4A airplanes. The other two ADs apply to all Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, 747SR, and 747SP series airplanes. The Viking Air AD requires doing a fluorescent penetrant inspection for cracking of certain upper engine mount bracket assemblies, and corrective actions if necessary. One of the Boeing ADs requires revising the FAA-approved maintenance inspection program to include inspections that will give no less than the required damage tolerance rating for each structural significant item, and repair of cracked structure. The other Boeing AD requires implementing a corrosion prevention and control program.

DATES:

AD 2008-01-02 is effective January 23, 2008. ADs 2004-07-22 R1 and 90-25-05 R1 are effective January 22, 2008.

(That AD revised an earlier AD by removing future type-certificated models from the applicability.)

As published, those ADs specify incorrect docket numbers throughout the preamble and regulatory text. Docket numbers are assigned by the Federal Document Management System. We have been informed that incorrect docket numbers were assigned. The correct docket information is provided in the following table.
