Help limp mode Power loss up hills

A few years ago a commercial flight went to land and they had an error saying the front gear hadsnt unlocked from stowed position. They did a flyby for a visual confirmation and sure enough the front wheels were perpendicular to the direction of travel.

They were locked down though so I think they flew in circles for an hour or so to minimize fuel on landing then got the fire trucks out by the runway and landed with the front gear exactly sideways.

Plane landed as if the wheels were rolling just leaving a nice smoky trail.

Tires lasted maybe 100-200 feet then it fell to the rims. Made a nice shower of sparks. Other than the front dropping 6" when the tires popped the plane just acted normally. They of course couldn't taxi.

Since you had to go up hill to your brother place can we assume that you had to go DOWN hill to get back to your place. Maybe that is why there wasn't a power lost.

Great to hear.

To close the chapter it might pay to check for any boost related codes, clear them and check they don't return.
