A380’s tyres burst due to hard landing!

So yesterday I was checking the radar at Perth Airport, and I seen the A380 land with the full runway length, (unusual) and many vehicles around it. I later found out that the plane made a hard landing that resulted in some of the gear being burst. Now I’ve been on a very hard A380 landing where people screamed and everything, but as far as I’m aware nothing happened to the gear, which means this landing must’ve been a very hard one.

Tyre is actually used too, just not in the US

Ah. Fair. Silly silly dialects.

The plane is kicking again. Just a short gear change and she is a flyin’.

The series of photos led me to believe burst tires were gonna show up in the last photo as I scrolled down… anticlimactic. Kidding. Thanks for sharing!

As it is an unfortunate truth that there are many small aviation incidences on a daily basis. We ask that you refrain from posting about these on the forum. This is due to the volume of topics we would otherwise get that would clog up the forum and dilute productive discussion of other topics.
