Not as dramatic or as dangerous however, after landing at Richmond and doing 80 to 90 knots. Hawkeye calls for flaps up and after landing checklist. The co pilot lifts the flap lever and follows through and Unknown to all, engaging the auto pilot. Hawkeye is calling.. I don't have any rudder control.... The engineer, who is now recovering from by pass surgery, was on the ball and rectified the matter. Remember the modification, a small metal handle was in stalled between the flap selector and the auto pilot. The handle had yellow and black tape and looked like an Ejection Handle.
