Aeronca Thrust Reverser Repair

Our customer call us on a Saturday afternoon.  He had landed at Palwaukee, and his unlock light remained on after stowing the TR.

We arrived on scene to find the upper door had broken its mount and crushed the inner core cowl.

We removed the TR and transported it back to Springfield for repair.

After extensive rework, we returned to Palwaukee and reinstalled the TR.
