Prop Strike due to partial gear collapse

Recommended Posts


To see how common this issue is….

See this thread.

From the mock-up drawing, you can see the round hole, and no ledge…

It is such a wide spread challenge… I threw in my lunch money that day to help defray the cost of getting a drawing made… My M20R doesn’t have lock blocks…   :)

Yours is really worn.

Almost never a good idea to take a damaged aircraft back into the air purposefully. 

If it’s a gut reaction to do something less safe in a reaction to an emergency, probably ripe to be trained away.  That’s the only way to avoid gut reactions.  Training and planning.
