Many moons ago as a teenager I went from around 50 hours in Victa 100 and C172's into a 1966 V tail. You would think with the alleged inherent design flaws coupled with youthful exuberance I would have become a smoking hole in the ground.

Interested to see Scott N's thread on BT recently regarding the Cessna 180 flaps being copies of the Bonanza. The article also mentioned that the forward strut attachment point on the Cessna was done based on knowledge of the issue with the Bonanza.
