On that subject, a : notable exception is the Shorts 330/360. Does anyone know if the engine : exhaust hitting the horizontal stab causes any structural problems?? Not to the horizontal stab but the exhaust that goes over the wing on the right of each engine causes problems to the upper wing skin. Also the aft fairing tends to corrode also due to the heat but not too badly. A mail carrier at Luton ( 7 years ago ) caused major disbonding of the left fuselage side above the window line when a very wet start sprayed flames down the side of an SD330. -- Ian Judge _|_ firstname.lastname@example.org _____(_)_____ ! ! !
