SU Bursts A Tire While Landing

Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:00 am

Good afternoon!


As reported by Cypriot media an Aeroflot flight burst a tire while landing in Larnaca this morning at 08:30. There were no major injuries but it seems that the flight skidded off the runway.
There were 280 passengers on board, so I guess it must have been either a IL-96 or A330-300.

The flight was scheduled to depart this morning at 09:20 and is currently delayed.

The morning flight is usually operated by an IL-96 however very often they substitute it with B767-300 or A330
