Reminds me of the John Deakin story of the pig that got loose in a C-46
For over 30 years, AVweb's John Deakin has been flying big iron for Japan Airlines. But in a previous lifetime (mid-60s), John flew for Air America in Southeast Asia. (Yes, THAT Air America.) As you might imagine, he's got a zillion fabulous and funny flying stories from those days. This true...www.avweb.com
He was stuck on the container wall with front legs on one side and rear legs on the other. (I’d post a link but can’t). The weight of the horse hanging no doubt did extensive internal damage which caused the need for euthanasia.Why not just let him romp around to the destination? He would have calmed down eventually.
Back when I was getting into RC flying and building my first kit, my mentor warned me to stay within the balance limits specified for the plane. The way he phrased it was: "A model that's nose heavy flies poorly. A model that's tail heavy flies once."When teaching W&B, I always included the consequences of exceeding both the forward and aft limits.
