AD NUMBER: 2012-09-05
PRODUCT: Certain 2-Fokker Services B.V.2-Model F.28 Mark 0100 airplanes.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-09-05
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by reports of failure of the main fitting on Messier-Dowty main landing gear (MLG) units due to fatigue cracking in the area of the filler and bleeder holes, and failure of the sliding member due to fatigue cracking at the area of the chrome run-out/lower radius of the sliding tube portion of the sliding member. This AD requires modification and re-identification of the MLG units, or replacement of the MLG unit with a modified one.
The FAA Is issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the main fitting or sliding member on the MLG, which could lead to failure of the MLG and possibly loss of control of the airplane during landing rollout.
DATES: This AD becomes effective June 12, 2012.
