Canada Rouge B763 at London on Jul 17th 2017, burst tyre on departure
Last Update: July 18, 2017 / 21:31:17 GMT/Zulu time
The airport reported the runway was closed shortly after departure of the aircraft for about 15 minutes while the runway was inspected and debris removed, then the runway was reopened for the return of the aircraft and closed again after landing. The backup runway 08L was put into operation however had to be closed as well after debris swept over onto that runway, too.
On Jul 18th 2017 the Canadian TSB reported the crew heard a loud bang while at high speed. The crew continued takeoff and while following the standard instrument departure declared PAN and requested vectors over the English Channel to prevent debris falling onto populated areas when the landing gear would be lowered. Air Traffic Control advised they had heard the bang, too, and tyre debris was found on the departure runway. The flight crew briefed cabin crew for an abnormal landing and a return to Gatwick was initiated where the aircraft landed overweight but safely on runway 08R. Both engines were shutdown while crew and emergency services monitored the increasing brakes temperatures. Passengers and crew deplaned onto the runway and were bussed to the terminal, the aircraft was subsequently towed off the runway. There were no injuries and with the exception of the tyre no damage to the aircraft.
