  1. Thanks for the excellent story and tips. I had a similar experience but was lucky enough to escape with egg on my face and no damage to the airplane. We pilots are indebted to those of us who tell how to avoid making mistakes. Hope you were able to fix the aircraft and keep flying it.

  2. I’m thankful that you shared your experience and allow others like me to learn from your lesson. My wife thinks I’m a bit morbid with how interested I am in learning from others’ mistakes, but I find that reading accounts like this are a less costly and less dangerous way to learn than by making all those mistakes myself.
