As there are lots of experience and knowledge on here, I thought I would pose a question to any who have experienced a Cessna or any other aircraft we so happily fly around the sky, Calmly enjoying the flight, scenery, and landing, who have pulled on the flaps and had all of a sudden make this terrible noise and bang as 1 comes unhooked from the flap lever and the other one stays attached!!
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced the thrill??
I think this is where the unusual attitude practice payed off big time!!
I had a 185 do that once, and also had the pulley on my M6 pull off the tubing above the baggage area and let all the flaps go!
Both happened end of season while on Ski's when it was cold??
Both quite exciting, Thats how you get to buy new gear legs for a Maule!
It was getting kind of calm so thought would throw something in the door and see how many bullet holes it gets!!
