Took me 2.5 hours to get down with a strong crosswind. Or rather, get down and stay down.
Here’s a 17 year old girl on her solo who was informed her wheel fell off her Piper Warrior.
Listen to the audio with ATC though the links.
Stressed, but kept her head and resumed flying a week later.
Good on her.
I’ll bet there are some interesting stories on solos. Some funny.
H/T to Comjam.
