A SAA South African Airways Airbus A319-100, registration ZS-SFM performing flight SA-64 from Johannesburg (South Africa) to Lusaka (Zambia), was in the initial climb out of Johannesburg's runway 03L when the crew requested to stop the climb at 8000 feet and enter a hold reporting they had a nose wheel problem, some rubber debris came out and the crew believed the debris had departed one of their nosewheels. The aircraft performed a low approach to runway 21L about 40 minutes after departure, slightly offset to the left to overfly taxiway Y for an inspection from the ground, ground observers reported a left hand nose tyre had blown out, the right hand tyre was still intact. The aircraft subsequently positioned for an approach to runway 21R, landed safely, vacated the runway and stopped for an inspection by emergency services.
