  1. Wait how could it have scraped the runway with that big meat eater prop out front and then flown away and landed gear down successfully? And this is one of the newer recent models being a 930. What happened to the gear up warning horn with flaps down and gear still up? That same horn tone goes off with gear up flaps up and a flight idle power setting. Did they just barely prop strike it?

  2. The N number has 930 in it the report says it is a 700.
