If someone did that to my airplane I would get mad mad mad mad.
That was nothing... the hangar he flew through afterwards wasn't high enough to put the wheels down in case he was too low, so he kept them up...
I was parking a king air with a 57’11” wingspan in a 60’ door and that was anything but comfortable. I can’t possibly imagine only having 3”. My depth perception is good, but not that good.
If it fits it fits. Paint lines on the floor for the mains, if they are on them you're good if they're not on them then what are you doing?
Most fool-proof will be getting some small angle-iron for guides on the mains to bolt down to the hangar floor, taped/painted lines outside to line up for the channels. Otherwise, just paint/tape the lines and ensure the mains are on it at all times. I'd make sure the tape width is narrower than the tires so that even getting off of the tape by an inch causes you panic, lol.
It was a rental!!
My joke referencing the movie from which this was cut notwithstanding, it being a rental makes it okay to damage an airplane?
Ever used full rental power?
I take better care of equipment that does not belong to me than I do my own equipment.
Yep! I'll second (or third?) this. I'm part owner on a T-28 parked in a group hangar; it's stashed in the back, so we have to move two other planes to get it out. On a Houston summer day this gets to be a hot and sweaty chore and just takes the fun right out of it, so we don't really fly it much... but on the upside, not flying it saves on gas money! It's a thirsty, spendy pig to fly. Fun though. If the hangar was easier access I'd probably fly it more...
It was a joke, I didn’t think I’d have to explain it.
Go ahead... Make us laugh.
The smarter one wasn’t flying.
I’m with the camp that thinks, if there is too much work getting the plane into or out of a hanger the draw to fly definitely can take a hit. Heck I think that when having to push an airplane into a hangar where space isn’t an issue but a slight incline is.
I’m not sure that is possible.
When I worked in a marina there was always a debate about how tight a stuffing box should be
