Because Owning And Flying Your Beechcraft Can Be Done Safely AND For Less Money!
  Late Model Main Gear Door Hits Airframe

Well folks, here's another stellar find reported by Beech Lister Kevin O.


Kevin and Beech expert Glenn 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!



By the way, Glenn Biggs is known to most Beechcraft mavens as THE premier airframe and reskinning flight controls expert on Beech airplanes.


If you have a rigging issue or any other Beechcraft issue, give Glenn a call

405-298-2661. He's in Wellston, OK just NE of Oklahoma City.
