Re: The Offending Puddle+++
Since i have been around this Q stuff longer than almost all of you guys... and I have a good memory... I can tell you that as original QUICKTALK editor the most heartening timestoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
was when a builder/pilot had an accident then had the guts to tell us about it, usually with photos. We learned. A number of pilots
did this... look thru old Q-Talks to see. I remember at least 2 guys, now dead, who resisted listening to experience talking. As a pre-web
editor we didn't re-hash it ad infinitum. That was editing then... now we have the internet.
This is not Sam H's first rodeo. He has consistently and for long years shared his experiences with his successful and very high
time aircraft. He's already doing it again. We will benefit. From all the accounts that I know he is a good pilot, a thoughtful man
and a good teacher. He already knows the lesson he learned. Now he has a mess to clean up.
Three cheers for all you guys who IMMEDIATELY stepped up ready to help Sam get his aircraft back home. That has been another
satisfying hallmark of the QBA over the years. I'm glad we still have it.

Some of the people on this list are clearly missing the point of it.
The point is to share good and bad experience with the group in hope of making a safer fleet, this includes judgment calls. The biggest point to be taking has been sadly missed by all so I will say it in hope of saving others. Sam one of the best builders, flying one of the best airplanes, with almost the most time in type had a problem. What the problem is, is a scary ground issue caused by the vary wide gear " that acts as a long lever ARM"and any additional drag even a sticky brake could give the same resolt. Other planes with narrow gear, bigger rudder and slower speeds would likly be unaffected. DON'T BE ASSHOLES SHARE, LEAR IT COULD SAVE LIVES.
