Yep, Ask the CAA, many moons ago JCB bought a new Falcon, think it was a 2000, they needed a stick shaker installed as it was the first on the UK register, even though not needed apparently, CAA did an air test then parked and chocked on slight gradient, in they all went inside the hangar and the brakes cooled and released, the said brand new jet hopped the chocks and trundled backwards smashing into their hangar doors
