CFI's worst nightmare

Bob Ridpath

Pit Bull love
17 year old student pilot had a main wheel fall off on her solo cross country flight.

Contrary to some media reports this was not her first solo.

Excellent work by Tower and her CFI.
Tremendous job done by all involved.

Soloed here personally off Rwy 16, a billion years ago. No tower. Still had the third runway (2-20). Was very impressed with the young lady flying here.

Kudos to all involved.
