Sep 2012 Taildragger lands in Idaho …. minus one wheel.
Have you seen this little video? Duane Reetz had a little problem earlier this week departing from the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport in Lewiston, Idaho. The tower called him just after lifting off to say his left main wheel had just fallen off his 1961 Piper PA-22-108 Colt (converted to tailwheel). Here’s some great footage of a guy that tried to do it right as long as he could ….. but sooner or later that left axle was going to dig in.

I heard about this. What an incredible pilot.
