In cases like these, Whatever the parent decides to do shouldn't be considered a beating.

It's the fathers fault for not teaching the boy some ground rules before the flight.

As God is my witness, I thought kids could fly.

For the next few months hit the reset button on his video game just before he hits a save point. After all, a beating can't continue for a fiscal quarter, but just farking with him can.

I guess better then thinking you're Casper the friendly ghost, taking the keys out, throwing them out the window and crash landing in the woods....

Pilot fails to extend landing gear, blames it on 6-year-old son.

He also released the bombs too soon over Macho Grande. I'll never get over that.

Are there any FAA regulations about how old you can be in the front seats of a plane?

Smells like bull shiat to me. Retractable gear aircraft have a weight on wheels switch that don't allow the wheels to retract after the plane has touched down. If the kid had pulled the lever just as the plane had touched down as he claimed, the wheels shouldn't have retracted.

TBH, stupid kid playing around with buttons and levers at exactly the wrong time sounds much more plausible to me.

Maybe.

OTOH, if your 6-year old kid is so A.D.D. that they can't keep from blindly grabbing and manipulating anything within their grubby little fingers' reach, they really should be strapped into a rear seat out of reach of anything critical. Doesn't matter if it's a car, plane, boat, or shopping cart.

"It's totaled"

1. Buy plane you can't afford
2. Realize that owning an airplane is farking expensive.
3. Crash plane
4. Blame boy
5. Collect insurance
6. Profit!!

(belly landing is NOT totaling an airplane)

Didn't I read a Michael Crichton book like that?

Could have been moments before it actually touched down.

And the phrasing in the article sounds like "kid being a moron" was the consensus of multiple people, not just the claim of one.

People tend to be pretty careful with things costing $150,000 and with the potential to kill you. I really doubt he would just forget to leave the landing gear off.
 
2012-08-03 12:06:19 PM
Yeah he probably forgot to extend hi landing gear like this guy

Damaged engines, props, tail flaps and dubious structural integrity?

It's totaled.

WoW switches can fail. Also It's possible the kid pulled the gear just before touch down. Most likely, though, the dad landed gear up and blamed it on the kid. Also based on the father's quick insurance estimates that the plane was becoming a financial burden and he thought this may be a good quick way to get out from under it.

They could have meant seconds before touching down, its not really clear. My kid does this all the time, thinking he knows better than me and trying to do something for me and farking up what I am doing.

You wanna see why daddy doesn't like you? Take a look. Take a good, hard look, buster. Now how is daddy gonna give Aunt Sally her wings? Aunt Sally is never going to be in the Mile High Club. She's gonna be sad and it's all your fault!

Evil Mackerel: It's the fathers fault for not teaching the boy some ground rules before the flight.


Actually, in a retract, I never let anyone younger than 10 sit up front during landing. Landing is already one of the most dangerous stages of flight. Why add more risk?

Add me to the dad said "now tell them you pushed that button, and I'll buy you an ice cream cone on the way home" group.

now there's a way to earn lifelong resentment from your dad.

Not all retracts have the so-called squat switch. Oh, and as mentioned, switches can fail.

I've 6 belly landings from C-172 RG to B727

All were repaired.

This baron will need minor sheet metal repair, new props, and 2 engine overhauls.

NOT a total

So... was the kid not wearing his seat belt?
or should we be drafting baby long arms onto the US swim team.
