When I was a kid we were head on a trip up to San Francisco pulling a travel trailer, My dad said last break for a bathroom break for another 40 minutes, last minute I said yes.  He pulled off and going don the off ramp a tire shot past went across the street and hit a pole at the gas station, wobbled around like a tire does and finally laid flat.  It wasn't until we pulled into the gas station we found out it was ours.  The trailer had 4 tires so it was still holding up.  My dad just said, "I am glad you had to pee"!

The tire was not very big, but its landing surprised people in the Jefferson Park neighborhood near the airport.

Who the hell isn't prepared, at all times, for a surprise airplane tire?

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your pilot speaking. According to our math up here, this flight is slightly overweight for landing. We're either going to need some brave volunteers who are willing to de-plane ahead of schedule, or we will attempt a different technique."

That this wasn't written by Chuck Tingle is the only thing shocking.
