I was spotting in the fog yesterday morning when a KA A320 came in to land. When the aircraft landed, I heard a sound that made me think "he's blown a tire." It was that thump-thump sound you get in a car when you've got a flat.
So, I was surprised that the pilot taxied and exited the runway (05R) using one of the high-speed exits. I had expected that they would stop on the runway.
Shortly after the aircraft exited the runway, I got a very strong smell of hot rubber.
This leads me to wondering: Is there some kind of indicator in the cockpit that tells the pilots "tire pressure is too low" or is it something you would hope they notice on the walkaround before the next flight?
