You want the “God’s Honest Truth”…

12 Sep

This question was in reference to the right engine failure on the Commanche airplane.

I didn’t expect what happened because I was always lead to believe that the reason for the counter rotating engines on that year’s plane was to eliminate the risk of the critical engine failure. But in reality, when the right engine failure – it pulled hard, way hard to the right. It was far more than I expected. It was like all the sudden, the right engine became the critical engine rather than the left.

That’s just my observation of what happened. It shouldn’t have been that severe.

Upon inspection afterward, rust was discovered in the Servo and the muffler was rusted out.

I wouldn’t say this was a textbook case.
