I have always wondered why that does not happen more often.Looks like he caught the wire with his main gear!
I hope that is not covid because the world needs you, not @#$%^&* useless lying politicians of all parties.
Bugga - keep safeThanks for the thought - the tests say it is Covid, but at least it's relatively mild. I was into some very busy writing when it hit - right now I'm fuzzy and can't concentrate. Back to clarity in another week, I expect...
I'm guessing the sudden nose down pitch when the plane tripped over the wire jounced the hook hard against its down snubber, rebounding it up to re-engage its up latch.His hook is down, it can be seen in the photo where the wire is about to catch his main gear.
My question is: what caused the wire to jump - did he his hook fail on the first wire and that failed catch caused this wire to whip up?
