My Lancair has fiberglass gap seals on the bottom between the flaps and the wing. If I inadvertently start to lower the flaps outside the white arc, the gap seals sing to me.

My -4 canopy skirt caused that when a piece of seal slipped out of place. Took me a while to figure it out, but stepping on the rudder at speed would change it as well as overall speed and vent airflow.
