Hello,

I can't get my head around this question, pretty sure I had it in my last test on M&B. It has a picture of the aircraft with the weights on the wheels and balast inside the aircraft, question asked for BEM and CG position. If the balast is inside the aircraft shouldn't it be included in the weight and moment on the wheels? And therefore not needed to be added sepperately to the table for CG or weight when working this out :-/

I get BEM 12041 and CG 151" thankfully close enough to get the right answer but still like to get it right.

Also CAP 696 doesn't say ballast in the description to BEM is it even included in BEM, should I be taking it off the total weight of the wheels?

thanks for any advice in advance
