Cubs 2 Oshkosh

Postby john graham » Fri Jul 27, 2012 9:10 am

I had some excitement after my 1st fuel stop in Indiana when my wheel broke off. A friend flew me two wheels and tires (200 miles away), and I was back in the air in 2-1/2 hours!

At the first stop was also a tractor show that had a lot of re-powered V-8 stuff. I'll post those pictures later.

I was in the group of 75 cubs that flew into Oshkosh for the 75th anniversary of the cub. Total was 181 cubs the last I heard.

this pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is my cub.

Great pictures John! The pot of gold picture is a fabulous picture that needs to be sold to someone :D

Did the wheel break on landing or during taxi? It sucks to be broken down away from home. I'm glad you were able to fix it so quickly!

Yep, incident. No damage to the firewall. wings (tips don't count) and no injuries. Not ever had that happen here John. I have seen the tail wheel come off but not the main spindle break. Usually get to lift them up on the tow dolly when the student lands with their feet in the "brakes are locked' position. :shock:
And of course the off runway 'it's a 4X4' landing that knocks off the nose gear :( I have been very lucky that I have never had to go out to an on airport problem landing and had anyone hurt, other than their pride, hope I can keep that up.
