When I had a job during high school, I was helping out at the local FBO (a Piper dealer).
One of the partners there flew Mohawks in Vietnam.
One of his war stories, he tells of the time he landed in one of those steel grate runways...
One of his main gear tires was destroyed with a bolt or something sticking out of the runway and the mag wheel caught fire during his roll out.
He held it on center line the best he could, but as airspeed dropped, he couldn't hold it on the steel and he ran off the side and buried the burning wheel in soft sand, apparently smothering the fire. (all by accident)
He said he was praised but the rest of the squadron for his quick thinking.
