There was a 747 (Lufty, I think) in Africa in about 1978 if I recall
correctly, that took off without LED`s deployed and crashed as a result.
I don`t remember the details of why they weren`t deployed, presumably the
signal from the TE flaps wasn`t working, and the crew missed the LED`s in
the before To checks. Perhaps someone here knows.
