SpiceJet plane from Dubai makes emergency landing in Jaipur after tyre burst


The SG-58 flight had 189 passengers on board and suffered a tyre burst when landing at the airport in Jaipur at around 9am. All emergency measures were activated and the passengers and crew were safely evacuated. No one suffered any injuries.

An inspection of the plane was initiated to ascertain the cause of the tyre burst. Tyre bursts while landing or taking off are extremely risky because they are responsible for bearing the brunt of the aircraft’s weight at high speeds.

These have often been blamed for aviation accidents and special care is taken to ensure that the landing gear is fully functional and free from technical glitches before each flight around the world.  Read More
