Abstract:

A visit to the QANTAS Jetbase at Sydney Airport was undertaken to inspect the condition of nine demonstrator bonded repairs which were applied to a Boeing 747, registration VH-EBW in 1990. The repairs had seen in excess of 37,000 hours of service since they were applied to regions of the aircraft which are susceptible to foreign object damage. Most of the repairs exhibited a degree of erosion damage, yet had still maintained their original bond integrity.
