The crew of an Airbus A300-600 at London Gatwick found the slats/flaps wouldn’t deploy correctly after start-up, so they recycled them several times, following procedures in the QRH, and talking to their engineering base.
Take-off was uneventful. But the crew was mentally prepared to deal with flap alerts.
Monarch, 26 July 2011. Could have been any of us. But at least Monarch pilots know how to handle a stall warning, unlike a few other unhappy crews in the last few years.
