Last Update: September 12, 2012 / 15:35:10 GMT/Zulu time
The runway was closed for about 12 hours as result until the 14 tyres were replaced, the aircraft was towed off the runway and the runway had been cleaned.
The NTSB opened an investigation into the occurrence reporting the aircraft suffered a complete electrical failure, the crew was flying on battery power only and nearly depleted the batteries. The NTSB is looking into what caused the failure of all four generators.
The airport reported the crew managed to get a backup generator online, but this did not power the anti-skid system.
The onward leg to Seoul (South Korea) was cancelled.
