AAIB investigation to Gulfstream G200, EC-KRN

Multiple tyre burst on landing, London Luton Airport, 14 January 2015.


Within a second of touchdown, a tyre, probably the right outboard, burst. The flight crew were aware of the burst tyre and perceived that a second tyre had also burst on the right side. They experienced directional control and braking difficulties which resulted in them selecting the emergency braking system. The crew brought the aircraft to a stop on the runway, after which it was found that all four mainwheel tyres had burst.
