    control wheel lock

    Good morning,
    As I recall, this AD required using a gust lock that covered the ignition or
    possibly required the use of the specific Beech gust lock. I believe there
    was an accident or incident where a pilot failed to remove his makeshift
    gust lock (like a large nail possibly).

    Wasn't there an AD or SB a few years ago that said certain Musketeers
    weren't supposed to have control wheel locks? Certain original locks didn't
    block the ignition switches so it was possible to start and try to take off
    with the lock still in place, as occurred in a crash in Texas (I think?).
    I recall being on the phone with some from Beech/Raytheon and saying "I have a control lock" and he said "congratulations!", and then I said but if I
    read this correctly I shouldn't. I think it was 2-3 days before he called my
    former IA to tell him my lock was okay.

    I believe that was the case. It was a Baron at Hobby Airport in Houston a few years back.

    I believe the bulletin requires use of the Beech gust lock on everything from the Musketeer thru Barons (I'm only aware of the piston side). I believe this came about due to the listed crash and also damage to the controls by forcing nails/ foreign materials into the opening and not having proper fit allowing wind to damage the shafts and blocks.
