AD NUMBER: 2004-08-17 MANUFACTURER: Cessna SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2004-08-17 SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness
directive (AD) for certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models
208 and 208B airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect any upper
and lower wing strut attach fitting nut for existence of the
corresponding cotter pin and do any necessary corrective action.
This AD is the result of a report of one airplane having loose and
improperly tied nuts on the wing struts upper attachment bolts. We
are issuing this AD to detect and correct loose and improperly tied
nuts on the wing struts, which could result in an attachment nut
coming off the bolt. This could lead to the failure of the wing
structure with consequent loss of control of the airplane.
