OK, First it was a student at the controls and it wasn't a landing at all. It was during taxi. All of a sudden the front tire locked, must have either ground off some of the tread and broke loose, ripping the stem at the tube and the strut collapsed when the plane tried to go forward. Didn't even get a flight in. And, the insurance did not even want to talk to me, at least so far.
I did the P-51 transition training at Cavalier Aviation, outside of Atlanta, Georgia in 1968. Did the DC-3 that year, in Daytona Beach too. Hard to believe that 50 years have gone by from then.
Doing the Diamond will get me a rental checkout in it too. Glass Panel, Auto Feather, single control for prop, mixture and throttle. Looks like fun.
