Re: Horizontal Stabiliser Angle of the Bristol 188

I think the OP might be referring to the significant anhedral, not the pitch angle of the stabiliser. At a guess, that would be to keep it out of the engine exhaust. Just for clarity - the tailplane is mounted high on top of the fin as a 'T' tail and has no (discernible) anhedral. Is it possible yo...

How does a plane lose the trailing edge of a winglet in cruise?! Since whatever did that likely also cause the crash (the probability of losing the winglet and crashing for different, completely unrelated, reasons is so small we may well discard it I think) I wonder what event could cause this?
