A/c taxies to the gate with its outboard right main landing gear tire blown. I didn’t note it until I later met the captain, who kindly informed me of this incident. The intact tire had also to be replaced, since it was subjected to overstress. According to him, LPB is a real tricky place to land because of the thin air (4,000 m.a.s.l.). Even the 3-engined B727 needs sometimes almost full throttle during final approach. Other jets, like B737-200, aren’t, due to the same reason,safe enough to operate here.
