AD: Fokker

AD NUMBER: 2007-22-06
MANUFACTURER: Fokker
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-22-06
SUMMARY:
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority ofanother country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Over the years, several Fokker 100 (F28 Mark 0100) operators reported that a MLG (main landing gear) wheel fell off during regular operation of the aircraft. These incidents occurred due to a missing spacer, which had inadvertently not been installed during a previous wheel change. Omitting the installation of the wheel spacer allows the wheel to move sideways along the axle, which subsequently leads to bearing failure, followed by loss of the wheel. This condition, if not corrected, could conceivably result in loss of control of the aircraft during the takeoff run, landing rollout or taxiing operations.
