American B738 at Vancouver on Apr 19th 2019, burst tyre on departure
Last Update: April 29, 2019 / 21:08:37 GMT/Zulu time
The Canadian TSB reported the crew determined a return to Vancouver would cause an overweight landing, the crew therefore decided to divert to Seattle. After landing the #2 tyre was confirmed burst, which resulted in several hydraulic lines, supports and wire harnesses in the left wheel well being severed. Additional damage was found to the left inboard flap, left horizontal stabilizer and lower wing panels. The left main gear tyres, damaged hydraulic lines and canon plugs were replaced.
