  1. “The airplane was operated as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 charter flight.“


  2. Narrow tends to misjudge flare height, waiting too long for the RWY width to "fill" the windscreen. prone to hard landings... I know.... :)

  3. I have got a fix for that - not many options around them parts- :-(

  4. Kinda of an expensive airplane to be banging the ground like that... one would think it could damage the running gear,........oh yeh it did............. dah........... better luck next time.
