Indonesia airliner suffers double tyre blow-out after landing (PHOTO)
Garuda Indonesia flight GA190 was coming into land at Kualanamu International Airport following a two-hour shuttle from Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta when the incident happened Monday.
"So the landing broke the left rear tyre. There were two of them and they broke off when the plane continued towards the taxiway,” Airport Duty Manager Abdi Nugroho told the Medan Tribune.
A picture of the ravaged tire is thought to have been first shared via WhatsApp before being re-uploaded online. RT.com has contacted Garuda Indonesia for comment.
Pilots alerted emergency services, who came to inspect the damage. Luckily, the potentially hazardous situation passed off without an injury for any of the 167 passengers and seven crew members on board.
