Has this happened before?

I'm confused, the article mentions "tyres"...what are those? Wink
|Quoting RussianJet (Reply 5):|
I suffer from a similar confusion whenever people start writing about 'airplanes'.
|Quoting Helvknight (Reply 2):|
According to the story there have been 5 incidents worldwide on the A320 series.
Given the number of A320 flights that's not a lot.
|Quoting Pilotaydin (Reply 1):|
all levers and handles on the bus are small and similar compared to a boeing, so yeah technically you could do that, BUT, I'm not sure if you have to press the brakes in to set the brake on the bus.
|Quoting SEPilot (Reply 8):|
I would disagree; the cost of a complete set of tires is not insignificant, especially if the wheels are damaged as well, as they probably would be. Five incidents is definitely too many.
Investigators believe the pilot was distracted because he had experienced a bad landing at Leeds Bradford before.
