Fluorescent dye penetrant inspection (FPI) carried out at NAL did not reveal any cracks anywhere in blade No. SA 7248-22 and in the suspected regions in blade No. BULZ 10. However, FPI and SEM examination showed presence of a tight crack on the convex surface at the leading edge close to the blade root platform in blade No. BULZ 10. Adjacent to the crack, a shallow mechanical damage was observed on the blade airfoil surface.
