    It's a bit hard to tell from that photo but the tire looks like it wore through from sliding. Maybe they had a RTO and the brake locked?
    Be alert! America needs more lerts.

        I don't get how the rim is not against the asphalt. Is the plane on jacks already?

          It's either on jacks or the undamaged wheels are holding it up.
          If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !
