While the photos are enlightening the text of the article reads like teenage drivel.

I often wondered what was meant by groundbreaking technology. I guess we now know!

Indeed!

More seriously is there something specific to the 350 regarding load per wheel?

I believe the 359 has a higher ACN than a 777 due to the fact it is only a double bogey. Not a triple bogey like the 777

Runway,

The A359 MTOW is 277T, hence only 4 wheel bogie arrangement. The -1000 has a 6 wheel bogie like the 777. Unsure as to the cause of the TLV incident, but generally not anywhere near MTOW out of there (only 9.5 hr flight home), so ACN probably not the issue.

Guess we’ll find out soon enough.

With respect, is that a serious question? To the best of my knowledge, this is the first incident of its kind in what must be thousands of pushback/taxying/landing events for the A350. Consequently, my first thought was the pavement in Tel Aviv. Not only that, and I'm not a civil engineer with knowledge of how asphalt or concrete aircraft movement surfaces and their substrates react to stress, but the fact that the pushback in Tel Aviv is significantly faster than any I've experienced elsewhere might have been a factor. Standing by to be corrected by the civil engineers out there.

Israelis drive the aircraft on the ground like they drive their cars on the road?
