AD: GE

AD NUMBER: 2003-09-06
MANUFACTURER: General Electric
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2003-09-06
SUMMARY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD), that is applicable to General Electric Company (GE) CF6-50 series turbofan engines. This amendment requires removal from service of eight serial number (SN) low-pressure turbine (LPT) stage 1 disks, part number (P/N) 9061M21P03, at the next engine shop visit. This amendment is prompted by a report of the potential for iron-rich inclusions introduced during manufacture in the affected disks. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent LPT stage 1 disk cracking, due to iron-rich inclusions introduced during manufacture, leading to uncontained disk failure.
