Note:
Service Difficulties:
Christian Eagle Model II, Defective Flying Wire, Attachment 5744: During a scheduled inspection, the submitter discovered a wrinkle in the wing-covering fabric. The wrinkle was located on the inboard trailing edge of the top wing. The "drag/anti-drag" wire rear attachment block was found broken. The block attaches the wire to the rear wing spar. Also, the trailing edge-to-center hoop attachment block failed. The submitter speculated the hoop attachment block failure was the result of the wire attachment block failure. Part total time not reported. March 1998 FAA AC43-16.
