SAIB Issued for Cracks on Beechcraft Duchess Main Landing Gear

            FAA has issued a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) to inform owners and operators of the Hawker Beechcraft Duchess about an issue with cracks found in the main landing gear "A" frame assemblies of these aircraft. The landing gear part numbers (P/Ns) identified in the SAIB were previously exempted from a repetitive inspection requirement with an earlier Airworthiness Directive (AD 97-06-10). Despite this AD's inspection requirement exemption, FAA recommends owners and operators of these aircraft continue to inspect of the "A" frame assemblies with these P/Ns, as well as submit reports of any cracks or failures found.
