          Sorry to hear about this, on the plus side nobody hurt and the damage doesn't look too serious.

          That's completely untrue, I can categorically state that I was an idiot before I joined.

            OH, no worries on THESE threads....the Historical Aviation is a paramount of cooperation and polite repose...

            now if YOu would like to witness humans devolve into snarrling, salavaiting "Fan boys" determined to argue every tiny point and disprove / discount any opinion unless it agrees entirely with theirs.....

            I would humbly point you towards "Modern Military Aviation"......it remains an entirely different world ....

            Have a great night folks...

                  Not an uncommon accident in a P-40. Pilot has to hand pump the gear after using the electrically driven hydraulic pump. Gear is only held down by hydraulic pressure, if pilot does not ensure the system is completely pressurised (using the hand pump) there may be insufficient pressure to hold the gear in position. Similar accident occurred with Mike Spaulding's P-40 in Australia a couple of years ago. Either that or it is mechanical failure. Not sure why the controller feels compelled to call the local PD everytime there is an accident.

                    That happened here at Old Warden with the Triplane so probably a procedure that needs following.

                      I daren't look, historic is tragic in itself. Every time I see suggestions for forum members to meet up I can't help thinking that Armageddon looks preferable...
