V1/VR

"On VR, the captain who was Pilot Flying felt a heavy strength on the controls, and thought about the stabilizer jam. He estimated the aircraft was unsafe to fly."

Excuse me for being old fashioned but doesn't V1 come before VR?

How much control input do you utilise before Vr?

fdr;

A welcome and detailed analysis; hopefully will be taken on board by the more erudite members of this forum.

Good quotes; would also like to add one of my favourites-"Man has oft more need to be reminded than informed"-(with apologies to --Samuel Johnson?). History really does seem to repeat itself, because we are forever reinventing the same old wheel. Similar to this forum really (mea culpa), same points made over and over again, but few seldom take note.

aviate-navigate-communicate



This really is the bottom line, isn't it?

One more food for thought from a former Air Force colleague-"Fight like crazy against Complacency-the biggest killer".

Yup you're right. However the PF probably didn't have the time to make a post on Tech Log about how to solve the problem.

Sitting on the ground being a wise man is easy.
