A Jordanian plane has crashed in Jordan near the Israeli border.

The plane crashed at Aqaba, Jordan's Red Sea airport, according to the Israeli rescue service.

The service said there were reports of casualties and Jordanian emergency vehicles were rushing to the scene.


Aqaba is within view of the Israeli resort town of Eilat.

I hope this is not a commerical airliner and perhaps with some luck if it is there might be some survivors.

My radio station reported the Jordanian cargo plane has not crashed.

It overturned upon landing at Jordan's Aqaba airport.

Luckily, there were no casualties

However, a spokesman for the Israeli rescue service said: "This was not a crash.

"The plane's tyre burst and the ruckus appeared like a crash."

The chief of the Civil Aviation Authority Suleiman Obeidat said the plane was parked on the tarmac at King Hussein International Airport when it suddenly rolled onto the ground.

"There was nobody in the vicinity, therefore, luckily, there were no casualties," he said.

There was no explanation on what caused the plane to roll.

A blown tire on a place can cause something like that, or worse depending on when the blowout occurs.

Note that if you're driving at 70mph on the highway and get a blowout you run a very serious risk of losing control of the car. Same applies here except a larger tire, probably higher pressure, and a far heavier vehicle.

In other words, potentially very dangerous, and I'm very happy to hear no one seems to have been hurt.
