    I hear you...same thing happened with the Cherokee 140 I once owned. Several owners later it took off from ABQ on a hot day, four aboard, you know the rest.

        Oh no. Sorry to hear that, Anne. As for Boatpix? They always scare the crap out of me when they circle taking photos of our boat while we're in Fishers Island Sound. Afraid they're going to hit the mast!

            Very sorry to hear Anne. We had a accident like that in RVN where a GP strap a backseater had on his lap came loose and wrapped around the rotor mast. Seems like things that have happened years ago keep happening.

              I had a CWO in my recon platoon try to start an OH-58 with the main rotor still tied down. One of the other pilots saw what was happening and reach in the door an shut it down. It was a CLM.

                Somewhere around An Khe, a UH-1D was spinning up, apparently to take a piece of brass somewhere. The brass' jeep pulled up with a low-frequency whip antenna extended. Dunno if it was Brass on an obsequious driver, but the jeep tried to pull up alongside the door, under the spinning main rotor. The antenna became a long razor blade whipping around for a revolutioin or so, then flew off. Nobody hurt, but the next dangerous item whipping around was the now-delaminated leading edge foil of the main rotor. Fortunately, nobody hurt, but a Hook had to come get the Huey off to a repair depot.

                Dunno if it was CLM for the brass, or Article 15 for the driver, or nothing at all. Good thing the ship did not have door guns. The pilot and crew were NOT happy.

                    I am so sorry to hear that, Anne. The thing I tell myself about my airplane sitting in a hangar at KFAM is at least nobody's going to crash it.

                      709 ride, anyone? (If that's what it's called)

                        I was a partner in an A-55 Baron for about a year. When I bought the P-Baron, I agreed to sell it and my partners wanted to sell too. The fella that purchased that landed gear up in less that 5 hours of flight time. It was sold for salvage. We just couldn't believe it.

                          It is called a 709 ride. However, in the case of a commercial pilot making such a blunder, a successful 709 ride would likely be irrelevant. His employability as a pilot is badly damaged.
