  1. Sorry. Let me say it this way: Q: Would I have been able to see this in pre-flight? A: No. I'd have to stick my head up the gear to see this. Or something like that. It's been quite the week. I'll ask again when in KERV to make sure I share the learnings of this debacle with all.
  2. Thank you. You honor me with your kind words. I’ll post when done. Thanks again. This is hard as heck! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I thought same and kicked myself. But Mooney guy told me there’s no way I could tell as the damage is done internally. I can’t see how that is so but he calmed me down and told me there’s no way I could’ve seen this. YIKES!!!! My SOP is to get a portable tow - I purchased the sidewinder - and put the parking brake always. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The way this works is a) ameliorate damage and stop bleeding b) coordinate repairs - yes will be done at MOONEY so I get new engine and new everything. I have a new plane and I want back a new plane not a torn down engine c) go after FBO for DIRECT and INDIRECT losses (e.g loss of use etc...) - my carrier does that for me Hope this is helpful Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Oh geez. I guess there’s always someone. Try www.empathy.com before posting about Spongebob. Best wishes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. You’re welcome - I’m distraught and devastated - but know MOONEY has been stellar A they really have been - and you know - stuff does happen. But I have a new plane - so no tear downs - new engine and new everything and if Signature doesn’t want to own up then it’s on their dime and were all good . I don’t hurt people but I know when I need to be made whole. Everyone now seems to get that so - horrors aside - all good Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Yes they know and were present - parts for ferrying being flown in This is NOT on MOONEY at all - or their craftsmanship Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. You’re offensive and uninformed. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. I obviously questioned myself - is there something I could’ve seen at preflight, the answer is NO. It’s unintentional internal damage so be careful when asking an FBO to tow any aircraft Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. It’s an inaccurate headline. It should say FBO DESTROYS BRAND NEW MOONEY OUT OF OVERSIGHT. PILOTS BEWARE. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Yes, that’s what I saw in the video and FAA confirmed. Freak error and accident Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Simply stated, no Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I have flown with a buddy from PR to Miami in a Cirrus SR22, the plane won’t make it most days so your comment is off base, we must refuel. So your comment is grossly inaccurate Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. RECALIBRATE THEN Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. They used the HUGE tow truck, like for jets which has the LONG towbar. They turned 45 degrees because that was what the kid was taught, well, it’s 11 and 13 degrees. So they sheared the gear and it collapsed immediately afterwards for obvious reasons. I’m sick to my stomach. And listen, I’m rated on the sr20’s and 22’s and can do compares but this is akin to boating. Hatters guys speak in biblical terms about Hatteras vs Viking and vice versa. So I say to each his own. Mooney flew a Company big Kajuna who was there with me and hand held me and they couldn’t do better under a sad and freaky thing for me. It’s an accident and you know, new engine and parts and we’re good. I’m changing FBOs and got a sidewinder tower by the way,... HA!
