17-Year-Old Student Pilot Successfully Lands Plane During Emergency

posted by Lance Houston - 

A 17-year-old student pilot successfully landed a plane that had lost a wheel Sunday, keeping calm under immense pressure. 

Maggie Taraska had just taken off on her first solo flight in a single-engine Piper PA-28 Warrior when the plane's right main wheel fell off. Taraska circled the Beverly Regional Airport in Massachusetts for the next half-hour as her flight instructor, John Singleton, and air traffic controllers coached her through what she needed to do.

Safe to say this teen is really going places... Get it?! Not sorry for the pun!
