For some reason, this sounds like lyrics from a Jimmy Buffett song to me.

Anyone else think Prince on subby's headline?  weak I know, but  I can't help it...

All seven and we'll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love and we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir faire, oo one in the whole universe
Will ever compare
I am yours now and you are mine and together we'll love through
All space and time, so don't cry
One day all seven will die

like 15 years ago i'm out with some friends playing a round. The little county airfield was right  next to the golf course, and at least once a year, someone would have a problem and set down on it.

On that day, it was right infront of us while we were on the 2nd tee right as i'm getting ready to hit. Plane roles to a stop just short of the green, and my buddy turns to me and goes, "Ok, someone has to say it....20 bucks if you hit the plane"

So we hop in the carts and race down there to make sure everything is ok, and this like 19 year old kid is climbing out all nervous like....

"You ok man! Had a problem? Nice landing" etc
"Yeah i'm ok the engine was doing something and i didn't think i'd make the field....this was only my second solo....sorry"

Same friend who was in another cart behind us comes up, sees everything is all smiles....and immediately  (jokingly), but the kid is rattled and takes it seriously, starts laying into the kid for messing up his line, jumping up and down, pointing at where his ball is, etc.

Good times. We all took par for the hole.

A hole in one is luck. A hole in two, is skill.

This makes no sense:  The pilot was planning to land at Portland International Jetport but returned to New York upon learning part of the landing gear was missing.

Like, you're over Gorham.  Portland is right there! But nope, wheel fell off, gonna fly 500+ miles back to New York!

Wait - Maine has a golf course?  That seems as weird as Canada having a warship.

Maybe he realized the plane was going to be stuck for a while between the investigation and repairs, and he wanted it to be stuck at his home airport?

How do you score it if you hit the banker? Is it a penalty or do you just play it wherever it lies? Is there a name for holing it on the same shot you hit the banker?

That was not the nose gear, it was the Maine gear.

The wheel being off isn't going to impact the planes ability to fly. He knew he was going to have to belly land, so probably wanted an airport he was familiar with, both for landing and to then deal with the aftermath, as the plane isn't going anywhere for a while. If it was a corporate owned plane, they probably wanted it back in their home field, where they are more equipped to deal with it, than 500 miles away. Also what emergency services were available might come into play.

He also probably wanted to burn off as much fuel as he could, so might as well get back home than do figure 8s around maine for a few hours.

Basically, "ok, well this trip is farked, might as well turn around and put it down where its easiest to deal with"

They don't have full-service mid-air tire changes any more...

That's almost certainly what happened.

LSB: One time I was waiting for a flight to Vegas. The plane that was supposed to pick us up lost an engine shortly after takeoff leaving Vegas. They had to burn off a bunch of fuel before landing. Then they had to get a new plane, deplane and reboard. They were only 3 hours late. farking Allegiant.
