A private Cessna type training aircraft made an emergency landing at the Ratmalana domestic airport a short while ago after one of its wheels fell in the Millaniya area on to the Southern Expressway, the Air Force said.
However there were no reports of any injury due to the falling of the wheel and the aircraft had landed at the airport safely lthough it had veered off the runway without any damage to the aircraft.
The trainee pilot was taken to the hospital for medical observation.

Not only do we have to contend with poor driving, we now have to worry about the sky falling on us. Blame it all on the tuk-tuk drivers: they are responsible for every evil in the country.

Why not immediately put up a notice boards at various locations along the high way with the text "Beware of falling wheels from the sky. Pay your attention to the sky as well whilst driving"
