Well folks, here's another stellar find
reported by Beech Lister
Kevin and Beech expert
Biggs were looking at a 2002 Baron
with milled out new style gear doors. Glenn noticed that the rear hinge
attachment brackets were cracked. The hinge was hitting the framework of the
wing when the door was opened causing the bracket to flex and ultimately fail!
You folks with newer Barons and MAYBE Bonanzas
should maybe be on the watch for this.
This is a massive repair, it's reported that
the wing must be removed to fix this! Yikes!!!
Thanks again to Kevin O. for his Beechcraft
sleuthing and reporting!
