  1. Beech has had a problem with that soleinoid for years

    1. Yeah, and pilots have been forgetful of checklists and the part where it reminds you to lower the landing gear before landing ever since retractables were first certified.

    2. And I would guess that you are an EX-SPURT (drip of water) who has experienced this in your flying career. To speak as an illiterate is as dumb as a post until you have to make such decisions.

  2. and apples are red...neither of which had anything to do with this incident
