More on tyre mishaps...

Lufthansa LH764 landed in Mumbai "about 30 minutes after the pilot declared an emergency due to a landing gear issue."
On landing, four wheels supposedly "blew out, with at least one wheel dissolving."
I think the aircraft is an A340.

Some photos I took while I made my yearly trip to Airfest this past march over at MacDill AFB. The storms soaked up all but the T-Birds who were able to fly at 4pm instead of their scheduled 3pm flight time.

There are a bit of em' so enjoy!

Image

F-22 Raptor from Tyndall AFB, FL. As you can see it was a VERY wet show.


Image

The F-22A Raptor and F-35A JSF on display. Later during the day when it poured, they pulled the JSF back into the hanger.


Image

F-15C Eagle! After these many years and STILL my favorite Aircraft!


Image

On the Heavies side of the flightline there was the Giant C-5M Super Galaxy


Image

The B-52 Stratofortress


Image

Randy Ball and his MiG-17F Had a fantastic demo even after the rainy weather!


Image

Even the A-10C Thunderbolt II was here!


Image

Unfortunately on both days the Thunderbirds flew a 5 ship high show. The reason was that Thunderbird #5 suffered a minor injury and was grounded for safety reasons. nevertheless they 5 put on an amazing show!


(Next phew photos were shot with my DSLR)
Image

The Thunderbirds performing the Diamond Pass In Review


Image

Thunderbirds before they perform the Diamond Aileron Roll, My favorite diamond maneuver.


Image

I do not recall which maneuver this was but it caught me by surprise nonetheless!


Apologies for the long "story" but I had such a great time there that I had the chance to post em/ here!
Let me know what you guys think.

Disheartening to hear a hull loss :( .........But great to hear that Pilots are safe :) .............

I hope this mechanical failure is isolated and never happens again :)
