FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for General
Electric Company (GE) CF6-80E1 series turbofan engines installed on
Airbus Industrie A330 series airplanes.

This AD results from reports of operators finding several

deployment of the thrust reverser, which can result in loss of
control of the airplane.
