> this will not turn out to be a load distribution accident. I go for pitot covers as well.
What you are forgetting is that they also load CARGO, for eg. Gold or other heavy items!!!!! ....so loading could be a problem, but I doubt it on this flight.
Pitot probes should give wrong take off speeds during take off run as well?
