Bombardier BD700 Global Express, VP-CRC


Following an extended period of heavy rain, VP-CRC took off from a dry runway for a long range flight to London Luton Airport. During the subsequent landing roll, the left inboard main landing gear tyre suffered a slide-through failure resulting from an initially locked wheel. This tyre failure caused extensive damage to the flight control system. Although the aircraft landed safely, the investigation revealed a significant flight safety risk and four safety recommendations are made.
