AD: Boeing

AD NUMBER: 2006-12-23
MANUFACTURER: Boeing
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-12-23
SUMMARY:
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Boeing Model 737-100, -200,-200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires initial and repetitive inspections of the elevator tab assembly to find any damage or discrepancy; and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD adds certain new inspections and removes certain existing inspections. This AD results from additional reports of airframe vibrations of the elevator tab during flight on airplanes inspected per the existing AD;subsequently, considerable damage was done to the elevator tab, elevator, and horizontal stabilizer. In several incidents, a portion of the elevator tab separated from the airplane. We are issuing this AD to prevent excessive in-flight vibrations of the elevator tab, which could lead to loss of the elevator tab and consequent loss of controllability of the airplane.
