    Exclamation Tyre Burst at CSIA Mumbai

    Etihad's A340-600, A6-EHI, operating EY203/204 between Mumbai and Abu Dhabi suffered with a tyre burst on Runway 27 of CSIA Mumbai last evening. All the passengers and crew had been reported safe and the secondary runway was brought in to action for a few hours. The incident did not have any major impact on the operations of the airport.

    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 !
