have not flown the 19, but I have always found the 23/24 airframes to
handle wind (crosswind or otherwise) far better than the equivalent
Cessnas and Pipers. In almost all cases, skids following touchdown are
the result of landing with side drift, and/or not retracting the flaps
immediately upon touchdown, prior to any braking.

[AP] I added my comment as a result of an argument with the inspector
during my last fligh review. In Australia our national regulator
(equivalent of FAA) has issued a decree to fail anyone who retracts
flaps whilst on the runway after one of their inspectors pulled the gear
upon a Baron during roll out. He had a real go at me during a short
field landing and still wanted to fail me even with the placard in view
in the plane and entry in the manual. Our regulator canbe like that.
Fortunately I won as we were doing a short field on a short field and on
the second attempt I demonstrated what happens if you don't retract the
flap (no brake, go around 3/4 down the run way as you aint going to
