Re the gear, you've probably flown a DC-3/C-47/R4D, and that's with no gear doors at all.

That mixture deal sounds really dangerous, though.




You just have to wonder what they were thinking. It was not like they were newbies to building airplanes but there were SO many things wrong.

And no doubt, you know that prior to tactile coding and some standardization of what was where, pilots transitioning from one airplane to another would often revert to old habits... another airplane lost.

For example, let's take this page at my old UPT base, Webb at Big Spring. Just check out the wad of metal (and wood) they were making.
