I could not get the link to work.
Here is what ANN had on the AD.
The attached link will take you to the AD in ADOBE format...

AD: Raytheon T-34, B45
AD NUMBER: 2001-13-18R1

SUBJECT: Wing Spar Cracks
SUMMARY: The FAA is revising Airworthiness
Directive (AD) 2001-13-18, which applies to Raytheon Aircraft
Corporation (Raytheon) Beech Models 45 (YT-34), A45 (T-34A, B-45),
and D45 (T-34B) airplanes. AD 2001-13-18 currently requires you to
repetitively inspect the wing spar assembly for cracks and replace
any wing spar assembly found cracked (unless the spar assembly has
a crack indication in the filler strip, where the direction of the
crack is toward the outside edge of the fillerstrip). AD 2001-13-18
also requires you to report the results of the initial inspection
and maintain the flight and operating restrictions required by AD
99-12-02 until the initial inspection is done. The FAA approved
alternative methods of compliance (AMOCs) to AD 2001-13-18
and has since determined that those AMOCs do not address all
critical areas in the wing spar assemblies and should no longer be
valid. The FAA is issuing this revision to AD 2001-13-18 for
the purpose ofeliminating the AMOCs to AD 2001-13-18. The actions
of this AD are intended to prevent wingspar failure caused by
fatigue cracks in the wing spar assemblies and ensure the
operationalsafety of the above-referenced airplanes.
