I was spotting in BOS today and 2 odd occurences happened within 15 mins. A surprise Iberia A340-300 landed around 4:20. It was on its way to JFK but was rediverted to BOS. I was listening to Air Traffic Control and apparently JFK was backed up or something.
15 Minutes later, there was a loud bang and lots of smoke where rubber met pavement when an AA flight landed. The right rear tire had popped. Emergency crews rushed over and was eventually tugged to the gate 30 minutes later.
Just thought I would share these 2 odd occurences. Lighting was terrible and my camera was poor so my Iberia Pic may not be uploaded to Airliners. Oh well.
