Because we can.

P.S. I don't know what's up with the weird lighting.  My camera is old.  Sorry.

    Reminds me of a (possibly apocryphal) story that emerged from the Mt Erebus disaster in Antarctica (wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_New_Zealand_Flight_901 ). Apparently a pair of undercarriage wheels joined by an axle survived the crash intact and partly as a reward for the hard work of recovering as many of the bodies as they could in difficult conditions, and partly because they could, before they left the site the recovery team was allowed to dig the the wheels out and set them off down the mountain. The crash occured about 1500 feet up the slope of the mountain, and the wheels were last seen disappearing into the distance on the Ross Ice Shelf...It was detailed in a book I have about the crash, but I have never seen it repeated anywhere else, so hence the not-certainty about it actually happening :)

    Wow. I didn't think it was going to happen either.

    If that actually did happen, it would have been highly entertaining to witness. You're always so full of such fascinating information!
