Ted Stuck In LAS

Tue Jun 20, 2006 7:29 am

Noticed a Ted a320 sticking out on taxiway Bravo with 2 flat tires. Looks as though all pax were taking the bus to the terminal. The #1 & #2 main tires were flat and possibly #3  will need replaced due to overweight/stress. I noted that they are in need of a "rhino" jack to lift the a/c.

hot temps and a short roll out could have caused it..if it was over the max landing weight then i would be really concerned.
bus driver.......move that bus:)

If the Aircraft has Rolled on with a Flat Tire.Its Adjacent Tire would need replacement too.
I may not win often, but I damn well never lose!!! ;)
