Looks like they didn't need to burn off as much as we thought. Textbook landing and they taxied off the runway under their own power.


Oh good they made it.. i missed it

Totally routine. Fire met them on the runway, they turned off as soon as they were slow enough, and stopped on the taxiway.

My wife is a big post malone fan and he was on this flight.

I live in rural western pa, and was at work, and we had a tornado citing about two minutes from where i was.

My wife was more concerned about post malones flight here than me, so I am sure she will be relieved!

(for anyone interested, I am fine too)

I was happily surprised to see this. I honestly thought there be some scraping on the runway.
Any landing you can walk away from..... you know the rest

Unless you lose all of them, blown tires aren't really that bad to deal with. You're in more danger from retracting them than anything.

Great job by the pilots - I remember while I was in grad school in Columbia, SC when the drummer for Blink 182 was in a crash taking off from Columbia - I believe they had tires blow out, but for whatever reason they never took off...

IIRC they were near V1 at the time, and tried to abort.

I've got so many of those things in my head that I've had to delete a few to free up storage.

Never had to do this..
This is the last corporate jet that resulted in casualties. (Lonnnng ago)

November 22, 2001Corporate LearjetCrashed after a rapid takeoff in which it went "nose-high" before the Pilot Flying (PF) lost control, both on board were killed.[122][123]


Since then obviously the E-brake incident. And many many "Smell of smoke" or "smoke in the cockpit" it was a good career. Was.


Got pics of 427 around somewhere. This is a very rare situation.

I dealt with it a few times. Mostly on -135s. They're easy. As long as they're on separate axles they just taxi to parking and we change them there.

One of our C-135s had a nose wheel bearing freeze with the wheel cocked at about 45 degrees. It hit the door as it retracted, so they came back. As soon as they cleared the foam the axle snapped and the wheel came off and rolled next to the airplane. My father walked the best part of 5 miles or more, in his AF blues and those horrible polyester pants and leather shoes (what passed for leather anyway), while they towed it from the far end of the Reef Runway to the hangar, very very slowly.

I'd expect that more when they are landing, TBH. The sudden pressure on the tires and all.

God bless your father. if he was wearing Corframs, that would stink on ice.
I'm pretty jealous of you. lived in paradise, got to smell a burnt SR-71... you were right there with aviation. It's a sin, but I envy you.🙄

Landing scuffs the tires, causing wear. Usually you'll see it getting down to the point the tire needs to be changed, but sometimes you misjudge.

Saw what was left of more than one FB-111 that had a Bad Day too.

How do you blow tires on takeoff?

m the photo I saw, it looked like a Gulfstream, probably a V if there were 16 passengers. That's a full load, and if it had 3700 gallons of fuel on board, as the news report said, that is close to e 25,000 pounds of fuel. Bottom line was he was close to max takeoff weight. I don't have an AFM here but my best guess is that rotation speed would be about 135 knots, or 155 mph. Put 90,500 pounds on those little tires going 155 mph, and the stresses are enormous. He needs to burn off 15,000 pounds of fuel to get below max landing weight. Down low that won't take long.
