Flying Simulator

Daily Stories by Dr Stephen Sloan

A couple of years ago I flew in the simulator at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City. I heard two bangs and the pilot  said we are going to simulate a landing with two blown tires. Later in the week I was on a flight from Dallas to Tokyo. As we took off I heard two bangs, bangs. The pilot announced we had blown two tires. We circled the airport, dumped fuel and landed safely. Bang, bang.
