September 05, Broomfield, Colo. / Beech Travelair


At 1130 mountain time, a Beech D95A operating as a multi-engine trainer suffered a landing gear retraction on the runway after landing at Jefferson County Airport. The flight instructor said the student went for the wrong switch and he couldnt get to the landing gear handle in time. The Travelairs flap and gear switches are in the opposite positions, relative to the throttle quadrant, than they are in most airplanes.
