A 17-Year-Old Student Pilot Successfully Lands Plane After Mishap On First Solo Flight
When Maggie Taraska took off on her first solo flight as a solo pilot we bet her spirits were as high as she'd be flying that day!
At least that was until she took off and air traffic control radioed over to let her know she lost her right main wheel!
She was obviously super worried (who the hell wouldn't be?) but kept her cool and circled the small airport for about half an hour.
Soon enough her flight instructor came along to coach her through it, reminding her they had plenty of time, fuel and daylight to be able to pull it off.
