    How's it going buddy long time no chat? I lost your #, wife came down with cancer, flying is.....yada yada...........How's Denver?

    I worked on the 900 above s/n24. The 50 T/R was designed by Grumann, when Dassault designed the 900 they didn't want to pay any more royalties so they designed their own. The initial design was a POS that eventually lead to an AD.

    In typical French fashion they tossed the 2 pilots under the bus and told the owner it was pilot error, two good guys that had to go through years of BS, almost fired, yada yada... Dassault never once even considered it was their fault, the owner had to put up his own $$ to do a metallurgy study and hire engineers to prove it to the NTSB.
