the 727 is equiped with 8 LE slats, 4 on each wing, along with an inboard
LE flap .  The slats cannot be partially extended.  There have been a
couple of incidents where the slats down stops have sheared from the track
and allowed the slat to slide completely off.  An AD was issued  and
periodic inspections of the slats and downstops is now required.
