FAA issues Beech 1900 emergency AD
31 August 2006

The FAA issued an Emergency AD (2006-18-51) for Beech 1900 planes after recent reports of cracks found in the wings of two Beech 1900D airplanes. During routine maintenance, the wing rear spar lower caps and rear spar web were found to have significant cracks. The AD requires a one-time visual inspection of both the left and right wing rear spar lower caps for cracking and other damage such as loose or missing fasteners. If found, cracks must be repaired and reported to the FAA. (FAA)
