    flaps

    We had a double flap failure as we turned final resulting in one flap being fully down and the other fully up. Luckily I had the experiance to take over (I was in the Right seat, child bride was PIC) and get down safely despite full left aileron needed to stay upright. A few thousand hours, instructor ratings and a heap of twin time helped!
    If you are lucky enough to live in dry air great....Everyone else get your flaps looked at.

    Mark,

    When you find the cause of the problem, post it. Be great if you can also post pictures. I'll bet that a failure like you discribed would be a handfull. Good on ya, mate!
