A Pinnacle Airlines Canadair CRJ-900 on behalf of Delta Airlines, registration N915XJ performing flight 9E-3285/DL-3285 from Boston,MA to Kansas City,MO (USA) with 73 passengers and 4 crew, departed Boston's runway 22R when upon being handed off to departure the crew reported they may have blown a nose gear tyre judging the handling of the aircraft. The crew left the gear extended and entered a holding to work the relevant checklists while the airport performed a runway inspection which found two main gear tyres. The crew concluded from the handling of the aircraft that these were both right hand main gear tyres. Due to weather and runway length considerations the crew decided to divert to New York JFK because of the longer runway 31L available, climbed to 10,000 feet and diverted to JFK, where the aircraft landed safely on runway 31L and stopped disabled on the runway. Emergency services reported there was no rubber left.

The airline confirmed both right main gear tyres blew on takeoff from Boston. The passengers were accomodated on other flights.

A replacement Canadair CRJ-900 reached Kansas City with a delay of 4 hours.
