TAMPA — A U.S. Airways jet safely landed at Tampa International Airport this afternoon despite the fact that one of its front tires blew out.
Paramedics went to the west runway just before 3 p.m. after getting reports that a 737 aircraft was having problems landing.
No one was injured, including the one celebrity on board: infomercial king Billy Mays, of Odessa, said Tampa Airport Authority spokeswoman Brenda Geoghagan.
On Saturday, Mays was on board the U.S. Airways passenger plane which made a hard landing at Tampa International Airport. No one was injured in the accident, according to airport officials, but Mays told a local television station that an item fell on his head. "All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head," Mays joked. Lt. Brian Dugan called it "pure speculation" to say his death could be related to the plane incident.
