Which leading/trailing edge flap or slat settings require the largest trim changes?
I mentioned in a previous post that lack of slats on the DC-9-15 seemed to give it a definite nose down attitude all the way to landing although slight pitch variations could be felt all the way down.
Thanks for any information.
