A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-300, registration N596NW performing flight DL-941 from Las Vegas,NV to Atlanta,GA (USA), departed Las Vegas' runway 08L but blew the inboard forward right main tyre on departure. The aircraft continued the flight and was on approach to Atlanta's runway 09L when the crew initiated a go around from about 1500 feet AGL due to an unsafe gear indication and a leak on the left hand hydraulic system. The aircraft climbed back to 3000 feet MSL and overflew the runway with the right hand main gear not extended, while nose and left main gear were extended. The crew positioned the aircraft for another approach while performing a successful alternate gear extension, landed safely on Atlanta's runway 09L (gear doors remained open) and stopped on the runway. Both forward right hand main tyres were replaced on the runway before the aircraft was towed off the runway.

The aircraft remained on the ground in Atlanta for about 19.5 hours before returning to service. Maintenance replaced two damaged and leaking hydraulic lines at the right hand main gear strut.
