Does anyone know how fast they would have to bring an A333 in without flaps? I'm guessing somewhere around 170-180 knots? I know this depends on winds, humidity, and weight but I'm just looking for a ballpark figure.

Gigneil, the flaps are designed so that if they don't go down on one side, the other is physically blocked from going down. If it wasn't, there would be a huge difference in lift, and get very hard (if not impossible) to maneuver the plane.

I agree that pilots don't fly with more flaps on one wing than the other. But I'm just wondering like you said if the operational flaps are blocked from extending more than the stucked one when do pilots come across the term flaps disagreement?
