Loose Nuts

An older FAA Airworthiness Bulletin has just been re-released by the CAA NZ drawing maintainers attention to the possible cracking or lack of locking of MS21042 Reduced Hex metal lock nuts. AWAL suggests Registered Operators have a discussion with their maintenance providers regarding this issue.
