    I was surprised that the NTSB after four years + has finally posted the accident I had with the failure of the elevator of the aircraft I was flying!

    However the report is listed as factual with supporting documents and pictures and a final NTSB legal statement that I can not understand?

    Usually the reports are listed as FINAL which means it is closed. I have never seen a report listed as “FACTUAL”

    I will say that the report is through and well presented and the FAA did not issue an Airworthiness Directive AD to prevent it from happening again.

    The cause was listed as corrosion and improper hardware installed by a mechanic in 2010.

    The excerpt from the logbook shows compliance with AD 0-11-04, Stab Nut Plates.
    Did the AD not go far enough?

    There has never been an AD for changing the elevator end attach point hardware. The AD only is for inspection of the nuts attaching the nuts connecting the stab to the fuselage........Newer model 150 and 152’s simply use a castellated nut and cartter pin, which is easy to see and can not come apart!

    The 38A bolt worked out of the nut plate
