Emirates Aircraft Lands Safely After Tyre Burst

An Emirates aircraft to Brisbane landed safely after a tyre burst and blew a hole in the outer skin of the plane

“Our flight EK430 flying from Dubai to Brisbane on July 1 experienced a technical fault during the cruise,” the airline said in a statement to The National.

“One of the aircraft’s 22 tyres ruptured during cruise, causing damage to a small portion of the aerodynamic fairing, which is an outer panel or the skin of the aircraft.

“At no point did it have any impact on the fuselage, frame or structure of the aircraft.

“The fairing has been completely replaced, checked and cleared by engineers, Airbus and all relevant authorities.”

“The aircraft landed safely in Brisbane and all passengers disembarked as scheduled. The safety of our passengers and crew has always been our top priority.”

Emirates flies to Australian cities including Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.
