Landing at DFFD just before we lost the torque link pin, the antiskid made it quite interesting.

We think that the FBO in Paris didn't put the safety pin in correctly after towing us out. It wasn't actually lost, it came out during the landing.

It also seems to me that the sliding bit is worn. I will post a photo when I go to the plane again.

Anyways it was played down due to the fact that we were repatriating the deceased President of the National assembly and there was a huge gathering of mourners and the press at the airport.

I'm surprised he didn't come back to life with all the shaking.

That’s the reason we never disconnected the toque links on pushback. Always depressurized the A System.
