Here is a detailed photo of the infamous 'blown tyre' take off, during the Blue Angels visit at this years Open Door. You can see that the right tyre of the main landing gear has bursted, and you can see very clearly - under the smoke - a large piece of the tyre. The demonstration was not stopped, but the incident was brought into the display and some 25 minutes later the Blues could start their display at 'loooow altituuuude' :)
