Default NTSB report for N306AB

Just reviewed the report...

Is this a glaring inaccuracy?

"Control continuity was established from the cockpit controls to the elevators and the right aileron. The left aileron controls cables were fractured and had a splayed, broom-strawed appearance, consistent with tension overload"

Since when has an RV7 had control cables for the ailerons?

Indeed it seems like an error. http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...d.php?t=151645

The Aircraft and Owner/Operator Information portion of the report listed total time of 258.9. Of interest is the report also indicated "The last documented inspection was a conditional inspection that was completed on May 15, 2015, at an airframe time of 258.9 hours."

Apparently the continuity department didn't review the report before it was released.

I noticed the same thing. Unfortunately it makes you question the accuracy of the rest of the report.

Default Accident

N number? Is it 306AB or 307AB? Two different N numbers on report?
