Default UAL loses another wheel on takeoff

B757 departing LAX. Tire decided to take a tour of the airport. Lots of comedians on the VAS Aviation Channel, my favority comment was:

"You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel"

The only reason I'm curious about this at all is I'd like to know where the wheel went and when/where it came off.

Obviously this is because of their DEI policies.

Wheel, they just never seem to catch a brake. Someone's not fastening these things properly, but nobody's saying who; probably the bogie man, who never tires of playing these games. Give him time. He's jacked, but will come 'round.

The whole story seems inflated, to me, but then I'm detached. From an axel point of view, it's just nuts, but it's starting to torque somebody off. We've seen this before: now it's a re-tread.

It seems, at a minimum, the "wheel-off" switch deserves a guard. Let's not forget, though, that United breaks guitars.

Wheel, what goes around, comes around, though at some point, the humor drops off.

Coincidence that both happened in CA?

I'm surprised that the media isn't putting the blame on Boeing because they built it.
