View Full Version : Blown tire at T/O in CDG

Does anybody know details about the white A300 which blocked the rwy in CDG after an air return. I heard that they blew a tire on T/O and a whole lot during the landing - maybe ´cause they had locked out reversers ?!

Hot brakes on the run out resulting in a fire on the main gear... fire was reported by another a/c, A300 made uneventful emergency landing and blocked a taxiway for a while, on landing total of x2 tires totally gone and damage to the rest and the brake units - obviously. Some internal damage to flap runners due to debris from the gear didn't help things much either... A/C was serviceable again within 36hrs.
