Just curious what has been done, industry wide, in regards to the jack screw on the MD80 since the unfortunate Alaska Airlines crash. Are the individual airlines resposible for proper maintenence, has the been any other changes?

Thanks!

Hi,

As far as I remember, a note was issued to check this screw more often and to double check the lubrification of the screw.

Also, did this also affect the MD90?

It affected the MD80, MD90 and 717, all share the same (non-failsafe) design.

It may of also included the DC-9, i dont recall.

Just curious....how do aircraft such as the Delta Shuttle MD-88's that cycle hourly in a given day fit into that maintenance schedule? Are there maintenance facilities at BOS, LGA, or DCA? Or would they shuttle each aircraft down to another airport ie ATL?

One of my favorite planes and flights by the way!!

Our current interval is 1000 hours for the Phase 1 (visual) inspection and 2000 hours for the phase 2 (endplay) inspection. These are both A.D. driven and the A.D. applies to all DC-9 series,MD-88, MD-90, and 717
