Oops, Magnetic Gradiometer Wingtips

by Brett Johnson January. 09, 2021 116 views

From back in the 2000's we fitted most of our Shrikes with Magnetic Sensors on the wing tips (to add a gradient measurement to the magnetometer already in the tail stinger). On two occasions the pilot forget the aircraft was now 1.0m or so wider, and now we have a "woops" moment.

Oops indeed. I once did similar in a tall hire van, carefully watched the front corner avoid the garage wall but forgot the garage roof overhang which gouged in to the side of the truck😳
