Re: First air-to-air shots of N8WQ
Hey Jay, Jerry and Mike,
You can add Brad Olsen (Tom Moore’s Q originally)to that list. NF tubing failed in the wheel pant near the disc. He locked up the other brake and did a 360. No damage. Quick repair and he was flying again.

Hi Mike and Rich,
We just discussed two cases of the nylaflow tubing failing. One was last week, Ray McCrea’s long EZ and the other was Jim Patillo’s Q200 a few years ago.

It doesn't sound like there have been any nylaflow tubing breaks.
I'm still running my 35 year old stuff with 1400 hours on it with no issues. I took a piece of the leftover 35 year old stuff and tried to break it with no luck, it seemed pretty good. I do a brake pressure test each time before landing so if it fails in flight I'll know that I'm landing with no brakes and can plan for that.
