Data entry REAR-END SNAFU: Weighty ballsup leads to plane take-off flap

phil dude

tare weight...

A pilot had told me that is what they actually do (strain gauge on wheels) - at least for commuter planes. In the USA I have had to "move to balance the plane" more than once, so I imagine the weight of the plane is not an unknown parameter!!!

Must be something else going on...
