My First aviation incident.... flat main tire

Recommended Posts

My First aviation incident.. after 75 hours total flight time,  I've ended up with a flat tire on landing.... it was a nice landing with no sideloading on the rubber but she immediately felt odd after touchdown and then was pulling hard left on the first taxiway after exiting the runway.
I did however notice that hte tire was low two days previously and my walk around was fine.  Oh well it all worked out well. This is such a light aircraft that the sidewalls of the tire even with low airpressure hardly shows to the eye.... so my next walk around will include me putting my foot with full weight on the tire top.  I can only do this with the wheel pants off however.
Oh well chaulk up another lesson for me.

True ... as a YouTube commenter mentioned  "(Had it been an emu) he would probably have pecked the ostrich for doing that to you."   😉
