Aviation Photo #1381451 Co-Z Cozy Mark IV - Untitled

[ Medium Large ]
273 of 1,678
This Israeli Cozy Mark IV on its way from Oskosh, landed at Reykjavík at 19:34 and when the nose wheel touched the runway the wheel itself broke off at the end of the strut. In the photo it is seen flying off and just about to strike the fuselage. Fortunately this did not cause any more trouble than the fiber strut making smoke and leaving a white line on the runway, taxiway and ramp. Could have been a lot worse.

It is interesting to see this picture then the picture of this aircraft on July 30, 2008 at Oshkosh. Glad this was a walk away and no injuries.

Technically outstanding image, and important in documenting an incident of huge interest to pilots / builders of this a/c type. Remarkable also for the presence of the photographer at this instant, at a remote outpost of the aviation world.

I am researching on building this exact aircraft configuration. This seems to be an outstanding and well built example of the model. I wish there was further information about the cause.
A once in a lifetime picture.

Fantastic, real time shot that allows me as a cozy builder the insight of what to be aware of and the fact it can happen!!!!
