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.
