AD NUMBER: 2007-12-01
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-12-01
SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness
directive (AD) for certain Bombardier Model DHC-8-00, DHC-8-200,
and DHC-8-300 series airplanes.
This AD requires, for certain airplanes, modification of the
upper bearing of the main landing gear (MLG) shock strut. This AD
also requires, for certain airplanes, revising the de Havilland
DHC-8 Maintenance Program Manual to include the MLG shock strut
This AD results from reports of over-extension of the MLG shock
strut piston, which allows the torque links to go over-center and
rest on the piston.
We are issuing this AD to prevent loss in shock absorption
during touchdown and failure of the shock strut housing, which
could result in a subsequent loss of directional control.
