Malaysia Airlines Jet Makes Emergency Landing. No, Not that flight, Another one.
This Malaysia Airlines flight landed, but with a burst tire.
One hundred sixty-six people (159 passengers, 7 crew) were aboard the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 737-800 that returned to Kuala Lumpur after a tire blew on takeoff. Flight MH192 had to burn off fuel in order to land safely, and returned four hours at 1:56 a.m. after take-off with emergency services on standby. The big clue was pieces of the blown tire left on the runway after takeoff.
The passengers were accommodated in local hotels until the replacement jet completed the flight on Monday.
