I'm thinkin' I would have peed myself just a bit....

Notice her tiny voice when she is informed of her issue.  I'd probably have been even less calm at that point in my training.....

She was scared but handled it pretty well.

I'd probably have pissed my pants. I give the young lady pilot credit for her composure. Once the initial shock wore off, she was pretty calm.



And whoever owns and maintains that aircraft,,,,be glad it was a 17 year old girl. I'd have beaten 'em for renting me an aircraft where the MAIN GEAR was in that bad of shape....Beaten them badly.

Beverly is my home town. I have flown out of the airport a bunch of times with my friend who has his pilots license.
