Hey ya'll.

I have a first-hand story here, but unfortunately, I didn't get much on it. My dad and I flew down to JVL today for Southern Wisconsin AirFest. After the show, departures were on rwy 14. We taxied up to the runway just as an VariEze or Long-EZ, known only as 4-Charlie-Zulu, was starting it's takeoff roll. We taxied up and departed, and just as we were off the runway, 4CZ called in to request immediate landing.

"Janesville Tower, 4CZ would like to request immediate landing."
"4CZ, confirm, you want to circle back around and land again?"
"Affirmative, my temperature is way high here."
"4CZ cleared for emergency landing, rwy 14. Do you need any assistance?"
"Uhh..no, I'm just going to pull off to the taxiway and see what's up."

(about two minutes pass) (by this team, we are leaving the airspace)

"4CZ would like assistance."
"4CZ, please repeat."
.....
"4CZ, please repeat."

This was about when I looked at my dad and said "Maybe we should tell him that he said he needs assistance." I kept looking back for any sign, to try and help out. During this time, Yellow Flight (a T-6 and a Yak-52 formation) were holding at the runway. Finally Yellow Flight got cleared out, and then I heard something about "All aircraft, standby. We do have an aircraft down and we are trying to sort things out" from the tower. Shortly thereafter, the Beech twin at the hold point was told to turn around and enter the runway at the second taxiway, due to debris on the runway.

I summarized much of this because details were a little bit foggy. My mind was going as I was listening, so I didn't catch exact words, but what I put is not subject to interpretation; that can be taken for what it is. My question is, does anyone have any more information? How bad was this exactly? How is the pilot?

Thanks for your help,
P. Valenstein

Hello,

I suppose, that is what you are referring to: (experimental airplane lost wheel)

Well, I guess that would probably be it, but that it was definitely not a mishap on takeoff. There goes the media again...

Vielen Dank, Simon

There's also a small blurb in today's State Journal (sorry, no link, although I admit it was only a half-assed search)...

Basically, the pilot returned to the field after experiencing high engine temperature. He then lost a wheel on landing. The pilot and his teenage daughter were the only passengers, and both are fine....

Ah, so there wasn't much to the story, eh. Great to hear that they're fine. Thanks for the udpate.

Affirmative, the Gazette later changed the story to a mishap on landing.
