Mechanics at BT-14 Accident

A Flight Training Mishap
This exhibit demonstrates what could happen to a student pilot’s aircraft when taxiing and applying his brakes too hard. Accidents, both minor and major, left many aircraft unfit for flying. Since cadets were learning, more accidents were bound to happen. This, combined with conditions like dusty airfields, kept mechanics busy with constant repairs.
