Hey Jordan. 
You must be a high partial? 
If you are, as a BVI pilot who loss that skill a long long time ago. 
I deeply appreciate you pointing out the mistakes that we who are totally blind 
can not pick out ourselves. 
Please continue to do so if when ever they exist.
A huge huge thanks once again.

Subject: [bvipilots] Michelle retracting the flaps on some aircraft just before 
landing

Anyone else noticing this issue with some aircraft?  I was flying the 747 in 
FSX last night and on final approach to Armstrong New Orleans, Michelle 
retracted the flaps at around 1000ft.  I knew there was a problem because I was 
getting a too low flap warning as I flew below 1000ft, and I quickly hit F8 to 
extend the flaps again.  I am doing the Approach checklist with her assisting 
me, and I will also point out that she thinks the flaps are retracted when they 
are not in the taxi to the gate or ramp checklist.
