    Surely a simple mechanism to give the pilots a message or light would have been easy to install!!
    It is installed, on the EICAS screen you will get a status message "Park Brake Set"

    Cool, finally get to look inside a plane tire, not to mention those 'drunk' skidmarks .
    Though I'm with my name colleague that one would expect some kind of warning device to keep such an occurence from happening.

    Wow, those are interesting photos. I am amazed that such a modern aircraft allows the parking brake to be set when airborne. Surely a simple mechanism to give the pilots a message or light would have been easy to install!!

    The student, having never been in that aircraft before, pulled what he thought was the heat, but was really the parking brake.
    ...and also an example on why if you dont know for sure... ask...

    We had a similar occurence here at my school back in 2001. A student and an instructor were up doing spins in the decathalon. The instructor said that it was getting a little cold and asked the student to turn the heat on. The student, having never been in that aircraft before, pulled what he thought was the heat, but was really the parking brake. Apparently to save money, the company that makes the decathalon used the exact same type of knob/lever to operate the brake and the heat. This is what happened on landing.
