Having it cocked 90 degrees off is better than, say, 20 degrees off. I have had a nosewheel cocked 90 degrees off before...scary experience I should say. All that happened though was the tire blew and the plane stopped going straight down the centerline of the runway.

Ok Mr. Know-it-all, what are you, a pilot??

Oh wait, your name might suggest that you ARE... my bad

I flew a cessna once... just for about 1/2 hour.

Are you a commercial pilot?
