Interesting thought. It sure looks like a post-design fix for something that was a problem during flight testing. Then again, the 1900 is an ugly aircraft even without that.If I had to guess, I would guess they are to help drop the nose if it ever blanked out the elevator in a stall.
And/or a quick-easy way to increase horizontal stabilizer area on a design that's been continually enlarged and expanded, without having to re-engineer the entire T-tail. Expediency über alle.If I had to guess, I would guess they are to help drop the nose if it ever blanked out the elevator in a stall.
It has one of the best cabins to ride in of any commuter turboprop. I kind of wish we had operated a 1900 at the air ambulance outfit I used to work at.Hmmm 1900D, love the cabin, makes a beautiful air ambulance, but maintenance wise a piece of junk. Perhaps best summerised as about 2 stretches to far. The landing gear loads crack the rear spar, Tee tail structural cracking, etc, etc.
I watched the video full screen ( I have a 39" monitor) and I noticed the following:But what are the double tail surfaces, or is that some sort of antenna?
