AD NUMBER: 2012-11-15
PRODUCT: All BAE SYSTEMS (Operations) Limited Model 4101 airplanes
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-11-15
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by reports of cracking found in the wing rear spar. This AD requires a one-time detailed inspection for cracks, corrosion, and other defects of the rear face of the wing rear spar, and repair if necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the rear spar, which could propagate to a critical length, possibly affecting the structural integrity of the area and resulting in a fuel tank rupture, with consequent damage to the airplane and possible injury to its occupants.
DATES: This AD becomes effective July 23, 2012.
