AD NUMBER: 2008-11-03
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-11-03
SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 737-100,
-200, and -200C series airplanes.
This AD 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 (SSI), doing repetitive inspections to detect
cracks of all SSIs, and repairing cracked structure.
This AD results from a report of incidents involving fatigue
cracking in transport category airplanes that are approaching or
have exceeded their design service objective.
We are issuing this AD to maintain the continued structural
integrity of the entire fleet of Model 737-100, -200, and -200C
