The EXACT same thing happened to their 737-2H4 registered N53SW on Jan. 19, 1994 here in Little Rock (LIT). As the plane lifted off the runway, the left-outer main wheel detached and was sent hurdling into a hanger door at the Raytheon Aircraft completions center off of LIT's RWY 22R.Luckily no one was injured. Flight 017 made a successful emergency landing at Dallas Love Field (DAL) about an hour and a half later....Just thought I'd share that with you all.
