AD NUMBER: 2012-09-14
PRODUCT: Certain Boeing Company Model 777 airplanes
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-09-14
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by reports of fractured and missing latch pin retention bolts that secure the latch pins on the forward cargo door. This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections for fractured or missing latch pin retention bolts, replacement of existing titanium bolts with new Inconel bolts, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct fractured and missing latch pin retention bolts, which could result in potential separation of the cargo door from the airplane and catastrophic decompression of the airplane.
DATES: This AD is effective June 21, 2012.
