A Dubai Bound Air India Flight Diverts to Mumbai on Suspicion of Damaged Tire

An Air India Express Flight flying from Lucknow to Dubai made a safe emergency landing in Mumbai on its third attempt.
Flight IX 193 took off at 2.05 pm on March 8, 2014, from Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport, Lucknow. Small rubber particles were detected on the runway after take-off led to suspicions that one or more tires could be damaged.

The plane was then diverted to Mumbai for an emergency landing, where the pilot asked ATC to check if the tires were satisfactory for safe landing. According to reports, the pilot brought the plane 100 feet above the runway, twice unsuccessfully. ATC successfully viewed the tires on the third flyby, after which the plane landed safely.
