Delays as Aer Lingus aircraft tyres burst on landing at Cardiff Airport
This is South Wales
“During the landing a tyre burst occurred and the aircraft came to a stop on the runway,” said Cardiff Airport in a statement.
Wow!! Aircraft Tyres on Planes bursting
This article from This Is South Wales shows that even with every bit of care in the World, things like this can happen. The Aircraft Tyres on our Boeing Aircraft are mainly remoulds. That may surprise some people, but when you think about it, the tyres are not used that often, they are only used for take-off and landing, the rest of the time the tyres are not doing anything, just sitting there in the wheel compartment.Remould tyres are very safe and indeed are also used on many of our trucks. Some of the leading tyre manufacturers make aircraft tyres including Michelin and Goodyear who also make Goodyear aircraft re-treads. This answers the question Are Remould Tyres Safe, of course they are, or they would not be used on planes.
One of the main Aircraft Tyres re-tread companies in the USA is a company called Desser Aircraft tire and rubber co . They make re-tread tyres for all types of aircraft including Military Jets, So there is no problem in using re-tread tyres for the normal holiday traffic planes that we all use, it’s just that every once in a while we may have a freak accident, like the one in Cardiff Airport in South Wales UK.
Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years. I have worked for a couple for national tyre companies in my younger days, before starting my first business. I now own a garage and MOT testing centre, here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre, and I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products that will help my business. We are members of Point-S and Motor-Codes and are also a Unipart Car Care Centre and of course Tyre-safe.
