Just got word from Capt Jerry & self-appointed investigator Dan Gryder that if a failure of the left wing occurred it would cause a left rolling moment.

That is preliminary information from them, awaiting a final report from these two “published” investigators.
Tell me you are joking, and even now you shall be forgiven.... :)

That thang is missing both sides at roughly the wing attach points.

Scary.

Mx item to lube wing bolts every 100 hours I think? I just fly a 350 on the side so am not a expert but I don’t believe a king air has lost a wing before.

I’m can think of an old (20k cycle) E90 that flew through a thunderstorm and had one come off. Those bozos that miraculously landed at CGI proved the KA airframe is a tanks.

I seem to recall a letter came out in the last year or two about defective wing bolts, but I don’t recall whether that was just for the 200 or the 350, too. However, the left side appears to have failed outside of that point.

There’s a lot of “WTF” going on in the KA community lately.
