11 August 2005

Upon landing at Tokyo-Narita, a Korean Air Boeing 747-400F cargo plane suffered a tyre failure. The failure was attributed to foreign object damage. Japan Air Lines flight 710, a Boeing 777-300, had lost a 40 cm by 2 metre long fuselage panel after landing three minutes earlier. The 747´s tyre was punctured after running over this panel. The runway remained closed for 24 minutes. (Asahi Shimbun)
