This girl is a Trooper... or as we say it in Massachusetts Throopha!

17 year old student pilot Maggie Taraska took off from Beverly Massachusetts Regional Airport on what was to be her very first solo cross country flight. Immediately after takeoff Maggie was informed by the Tower Controller that she had lost her right main wheel on the Piper Warrior she was flying.
