Undercarriage bungees

No fault of design but a secondary effect of excess lubrication smearing means that the bungees have got a little moist EVEN though they are wrapped in nice leather boots

The net effect was that a bungee slipped over a bobbin and let the leg go slack .. well as far as the bolt stop point..

I created a temporary splint as I didn’t trust leaving the aircraft on a jack and axle stand EVEN with a ratchet strap between the two wheels

This will be really handy in future maintenance
