    As Bob stated in an earlier video, the Thud initially had excessive slop in the elevator control system. This problem was solved with tinkering and fine-tuning the linkage. A similar problem manifested itself in the nose-gear steering as a result of a mysterious tire-wobble. Ali wisely elected to defer the maiden flight and allow additional time to work out these details.
    I commend both Bob and Ali for the decision to not attempt to fly the F-105 until these issues were resolved. The time, reputations and investments of both Bob and Ali are far too great to risk anything less from either of them. It is not unusual for such a “new” jet to require “tweaking.”
