This is the first accident of A340-600

I don't belive that the colourful aircraft make an incident!
Just like the last time SQ006 9V-SPK with Tropcal Megatop colour

Not heavy landing, but ABS failure made it...

Cool pic but its *tires*

Depends what country you're in!!
Anybody know why the TYRES were all blown

A visitor from Germany posted Tue May 23, 2006:
Does anybody know the reason for the blown tyres?
locked brakes? heavy touch down? Antiskid disabled?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 22, 2006:
"cool pic but its *tires*" - not in British English it isn't! The tyres have clearly blown!

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 21, 2006:
Good thing nobody was hurt. BTW, I like the paint job on that plane.

A visitor from Denmark posted Sun May 21, 2006:
Better tires? They did exactly what they are supposed to do! If you use full braking on a big aircraft the brakes reach very high temperatures, which makes the fuseplugs melt, this assures the tires wont explode! An aborted takeoff close to V1 will almost always end up in what we see in this photo

I'm glad everyone was ok, but look at that paint job. Gross...

Heavy landing?

Better City, Better Life, ... Better Tyres?
