BAE Systems Alert Service Bulletin A32-180, issued on 25 February 2009, reintroduced the repetitive in-service inspection requirements of Messier Dowty SB 146-32-149 on nose landing gear main fittings that had SB 146-32-150 embodiment claimed by Messier Services Inc. EASA Airworthiness Directive 2009-043-E, also issued in February 2009, mandated this Service Bulletin.
Messier Dowty published Service Bulletin SB 146-32-174 on 26 August 2009, which introduced an improved ultrasonic inspection technique and a shorter re-inspection interval for the affected nose landing gear main fittings, which superseded SB 146-32-149.
BAE Systems subsequently re-issued Alert Service Bulletin A32-180 (Revision 1), which introduced Messier Dowty SB 146-32-174 and canceled the requirements of Messier Dowty SB 146-32-149.
Messier Dowty issued Service Bulletin SB 146-32 173 on 30 September 2009, which required borescope inspection of nose landing gear main fittings overhauled by Messier Services, Sterling, Virginia, to verify the proper incorporation of Messier Dowty SB 146-32-150.
EASA Airworthiness Directive 2009-0197-E, published on 7 September 2009, mandated the requirements of BAE Systems Alert Service Bulletin A32-180 Revision 1, and Messier.
