United B772 at Newark on Nov 26th 2017, burst main tyre on landing
Last Update: November 27, 2017 / 14:38:03 GMT/Zulu time
The outboard forward right hand main tyre was found blown, tower was advised there was possibly debris on the runway and closed the runway.
Passengers later reported the captain announced 4 right hand main tyres and 2 left hand main tyres had deflated in total, there had been a brakes problem on landing.
Subsequent arrivals were reassigned to runway 22R. About 10 minutes later a situation developed during which the tower controller was increasingly uneasy and prepared to instruct a go around as separation between an arrival to runway 22R, a Lufthansa A330-300 registration D-AIKG performing flight LH-408 arriving from Dusseldorf (Germany) and an arrival to runway 29, a Commutair Embraer ERJ-145, registration N16183 performing flight C5-4959/UA-4959 arriving from Ithaca,NY (USA), got a bit too close for comfort. Tower instructed the A330 to maintain minimum speed during final approach and let both landings continue, both aircraft touched down within 25 seconds.
