Is there some kind of run flat stuff we could pump into those tyres?

Sorry to hear all that, Paul. Glad you're okay. If you remember, Dick
Shapley totaled his Q-200 on the way to Oshkosh. He, too, had a flat tire.
He also hit another parked plane, I think it was a Stinson.
You have had a sudden engine stoppage and most manufacturers recommend a
complete engine tear down. I had a prop strike and the visual damage didn't
seem all that bad. A dial indicator check showed there was some wobble at
the crankshaft flange. After dissasembly, a magnaflux check revealed a
crack right where the crank transitions to the flange.
Here is the link to the Continental service bulletin, regarding sudden
engine stoppage: http://www.tcmlink.

wasn't just the prop and crank (and tailcone) that suffered. All rotating
parts experienced the same thing.
Good luck in your repair.
How did you get away with not having a tail that comes off, anyway?
