AD NUMBER: 2008-03-20
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-03-20
SUMMARY: The FAA is
adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing
Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes.
This AD requires, among other actions, modifying the
door-mounted escape system of the forward right side door slide
This AD results from reports indicating that the forward right
escape slide inflated 90 degrees out of alignment after deployment
from the forward right side slide compartment.
We are issuing this AD to prevent the escape slide from being
unusable during an emergency evacuation and consequent injury to
passengers or crewmembers.
