Somebody flying along on a crosscountry flight in a Zenith CH601 fixed wing happened to notice that his prop spinner was no longer in the centerline made an emergency landing at my strip last week. upon inspection of the Rotax 912 it was seen that 2 of the bolts attaching the engine to the bed mount were missing! The proper bolts and an inspection by an A and P the next day got the guy back on his way. The incident could have had a very bad ending with the loss of the pilot and machine. careful check of all fasteners is important for everyones safety. Fly safe!!
