Does anyone know if the engine >exhaust hitting the horizontal stab causes any structural problems?? When I flew the Box(Shorts 360 & 360AR) for Simmons(MQ) in the mid 80's we had a few aircraft that went though a 10000 hour inspections and I can't remember any problems with the tails from the engine exhaust. The plane was nice to fly if you could stand to look at it as you got into it.
