An Etihad Boeing 747-800 freighter, registration N855GT performing freight flight EY-960 from Dhaka (Bangladesh) to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), was accelerating for takeoff from Dhaka's runway 14 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (about 140 knots over ground). The aircraft slowed safely and came to a stop just short of the runway end. The aircraft subsequently vacated the runway and was taxiing along parallel taxiway N towards the cargo apron, when between intersections with taxiway C and intersection with taxiway F 8 main tyres deflated disabling the aircraft on taxiway N.

The aircraft remained in that position for 59 hours until repairs were completed, the aircraft subsequently resumed the flight.

The portion of taxiway N between intersections C and F remained closed for repairs of the taxiway.
