The sheared part of starboard wing leading edge skin, located close to the slat groove, of an aircraft was sent to the laboratory for investigation. Examination revealed that the skin sheared off by overload fracture. The fracture was associated with gross deformation suggesting possible interference with other movable parts of the wing. There were no evidences of progressive failure such as fatigue or stress corrosion cracking.
