Anyone able to tell me why this 135 has that little damm in front of the static port? Havenít seen it before on the 8 different 135s I have come across...

Is this one configured the same as the other 8 from an optional equipment stand point? Is it on both sides?

"Dams" are usually installed when something is added that affects airflow at the static port and its sensitivity.

Looks like someone in Donauworth might have drilled supporting holes in the wrong spot.

well, we had similar “Ram-blades“ on the BK 117, which had to be changed with different configurations (FLIR build on or not)
