Why is it you lose primary flight control indications on eicas when you pull eng oil pressure cb's. Left engine: lh aileron and elevator, Right engine: rh aileron and elevator as well as rudder? (rudder may be on Lh eng)

How does this look like exactly.What causes the Diamond shape.

MEL

Hi MEL,

The trailing edges on the wings of a single-engined Cessna are taken up entirely by the control surfaces (inboard flaps, outboard ailerons). Well, Cessna control surfaces use the skin itself as a structural component (for the most part), so spaced every 3 to 4 inches, there is a diamond-shaped corrugation in the metal.

An inattentive ______ (fill in the blank: pilot, instructor, ramp worker, first-time GA passenger) will receive a rude awakiening when they walk into the trailing edge of the wing, and experience one of these unprotected corrugations for the first time  Wink And it doesn't help that for most people, the wing on the 150/152 or 172 is about forehead level.

I'll see if I can snap a picture in the next day or two when I drop by the airport...

Regards,

Brent

I think we're just arguing nomenclature here - but I'm pretty certain all the 707's LE devices would be called Kruger's, or else a similar type of flap hinged at the LE and folding under the wing when stowed.

A slat, when deployed runs out on a track forwards and down, and when fully deployed leaves a slot between itself and the wing. They're usually airfoil shaped.

A Kruger deploys by pivoting down around a hinge set on the LE. They're usually much more flat shaped - especially on the 707.

Here's a good photo showing the full span Krugers - they all pivot down from the LE:

Correct answers DH106:

A Leading Edge Flap when extended will not create a Slot between the Flap and the Wing.

A Leading Edge Slat when extended will create a Slot between the Slat and the Wing.

As stated in another reply the DC-8 wing had Slots, but they are a fixed part of the Wing Structure.

The 707-300 in the picture has Kruger Flaps = Leading Edge Flaps.

Both of you are correct, on original 100's there was an exhaust exit door, and when the light was on indicated that the door was open, on -200's and modded 100's(without the exit door) the light indicates the fuel valve is open.

Some early turboprops came with a sort of APU. The Convair 580 had what they called a GTC- gas turbine compressor. It was used for starting the engines, but did not have a generator, so wasn't called an APU. Bloody noisy thing, though!

Actually some CV-580's did have an APU, some a/c had it mounted in the tail while others had what we call an upside down GTC, its basically the same as the GTC but was more powerful and had a generator (the reason it was called an upside down GTC is that it was the same basic model as the standard but the intake was on the bottom instead of the top.)

We just brought up a CV-240 that had an APU in it. It was a two-cylinder air cooled piston engine with generator mounted to it.

Yes, the slots were formed by doors in the main wing surface near the LE opening inwards. The spanwise extent of these slots is actually quite small on the DC-8, limited to an area inboard of each engine only - the outer engines having a larger slot for some reason.

I agree with everything you wrote, but the "slats" on the 707 are not simply hinged, but articulated; and they do leave a slot. This is the difference between the Kruger flaps and the slats. This was done so that the inboard end of the wing would stall first. The 707 slats evolved to the variable camber devices found on the 747.

Yes - I take your point about the articulation & slot, but never the less in an engineering sense they do pivot down around a 'notional' LE hinge point rather than sliding out on a track. It's obviously all really in the name, but I'd regard these as slotted Kruger's, Boeing calls them slats.

Do the variable camber 747 devices leave a slot ? I didn't think so.

where is the SOB fairing on a 767?

I can't believe nobody has guessed at this ! Are there no 767 mechanics out here? It's on the 762 & 763 (probably the 764). It's called the SOB in the MM.
Not as easy as originally perceived

Krueger Flaps, not Kruger Flaps! Krueger was a German aerodynamicist...

Here is a good question: what commercial airliner type has been in service with engines supplied by four different manufacturers?
