Glacier Girl Emergency

Posted by Tulio on Tue Apr 20, 2004 11:56:26 PM

I am watching CNBC right now, and they are showing a report on a former WAAF pilot, Flora Belle Reece, who flew today as guest on the Glacier Girl; interestingly, she never flew these during WWII and this was her first flight in one.

While getting ready to landing, the (L) MLG failed to deploy, and had to be cranked by hand to lower and lock it in position.

There has been nice footage of the flight and the landing gear failure and uneventful landing afterwards.
