Probably the best example you will see of flutter on an aircraft. Ramy's first flight at Airliner Treffen Show nearly ends in disaster when the push rod on the rudder becomes lose and the flutter destroys the lower part of the rudder. Added to that a bad hinge on an aileron results in flutter of the left wing. It all could have gone very badly wrong...

:O I hope it's not an inherent problem of the grown-up version...
That was a skilled recovery, though. :thumbup:
