New AD related to 737 skin cracks

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of cracks found in the skin at body station (STA) 540 just below stringer S-22L on a Model 737-700 series airplane. This AD requires repetitive detailed and high frequency eddy current inspections for cracking of the skin around the eight fasteners common to the ends of the STA 540 bulkhead chords between stringers S-22 and S-23, left and right sides; and corrective actions and preventive modification if necessary. The FAA states that it is issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking in the skin, which can result in rapid decompression of the cabin.
