In a safety scare, a SpiceJet aircraft ‘dropped’ one of its tyres while taking off from Bengaluru on Tuesday evening with 204 pass- engers and seven crew members on board.
“One of the rear tyres tyres fell off or burst while our aircraft was taking off from Bengaluru. The pilot landed the aircraft safely at the destination and all passengers have disembarked safely.”
Bengaluru airport sources said that when the pilot was informed about the tyre, there were fears that the plane may get stuck on the runway after landing in Kolkata. But luckily for the single-runway airport, the plane was able to vacate the strip after landing.
