Oh great, more photographic evidence that a Hog can actually have open airbrakes when parked :thumbsup: Serves very well for my current build (not that I could change things at this point, anyway :winkgrin:. :rofl:)

 

Thanks for posting them, Keith! :thumbsup:

I have no doubt that the airbrakes (for a Hog I wouldn't call them speed brakes) could be left open when parked, but why would you? The two jets above are taxiing into their parking spots. In this case, whether or not they closed them once they were chocked and shutting down? Couldn't tell you (my memory is not that good!).

 

Cheers

Oops, didn't notice the pilot in (watching this on a small smartphone screen).

 

There was a discussion at the beginning of my build because it's very hard to find pics of parked Hogs with open airbrakes; I did actually find a couple, and @Gene K also provided a link to a video showing one like that, but the vast majority of available photos shows them closed. Alas, I did decide to pose them open, that's why I was happy to (apparently) see further confirmation. :shrug:

The Hawgs will be missed  when they are gone....what a magnificent airplane  beloved by its pilots, from everything I have read. Great photos, as usual!
