Precision AT42 at Arusha on Dec 13th 2013, blew all main tyres on landing
Last Update: December 17, 2013 / 18:28:03 GMT/Zulu time
The airline confirmed the incident advising passengers that due to the lack of aircraft their schedule was disrupted.
On Dec 17th the airline announced that the aircraft has been repaired and and resumed service. The airline explained, that the approach to Arusha's runway 09 was not deemed safe due to rain, the crew therefore decided to land on runway 27 accepting tail wind. Due to the higher speed above ground the crew applied higher brake forces which led to the deflation of the tyres.
