Friend was delayed 24 hours by that. Apparently, there wasn't a jack available at Fort Myers to get the plane on its feet again and a large part of the delay was waiting for equipment to be brought from Orlando.
The jack is probably holding up the causeway to Sanibel Island
They had to close the airport while waiting on the Michelin Man.
Does the 737 co-pilot brakes have no anti-skid like the KC-135? I can't tell you how many tires I changed over the years cuz some co-pilot tapped his toes on the brake pedals on landing.
Passenger said there was the sound of a puff of smoke. What does a puff sound like?
