Aircraft tyres burst while landing at ‘Eua airport

A Real Tonga Airline plane without passengers suffered blown tyres when it landed safely at ‘Eua Airport last Saturday.

The Y2 aircraft had just touched down at Kaufana Airport when the tyres burst.

Real Tonga Airline did not immediately respond to our request for comment.

However the Director Tevita Palu told local media the company was working on a report about the incident before it would be submitted to the Ministry.

The Minister of Civil Aviation Hon ‘Etuate Lavulavu was reported as saying he was concerned about the safety of the people as he believed this was not the first time such mechanical breakdown happened.
