Recommended Posts

Being a tyre guy. Tyre (earlier) damaged by a piece of debris/metal on a runway and yarns broken...... Maintenance, maintenance.

Is this just a bad year for Thailand's transportation sector or are the years (yes, even decades!) of shoddy maintenance simply starting to catch up?

Aircraft troubles

Train derailments

bus and van tragedies

Ferries capsizing...

...it all seems to occur much more frequently this year than I can remember.

That is incredible There it is in clear view "The Tire Burst" but then a Thai official says it did not burst it just deflated.

I think this is the way the entire Thai culture runs on half truths.

So sad that they feel they must down play a situation rather then telling the public the real facts

Jet aircraft Wheel Assemblies have a meltable fuse plug to allow deflation of the tire if it over heats. The tires will overheat if too much braking is applied. Two things, If the fuse fails to melt the tire will burst. The problems occurrs when a pilot applies max braking to shorten the landing roll. Sometimes because they land too far down the runway and need to stop or more often to make the first turn off of the runway.

The other purpose is to deflate the tire if it over heats during taxi or take off roll. This prevents the overheated tire from bursting in the Wheel Well and causing damage to components in the Wheel Well. The heavier the aircraft the more the tires will heat up during taxi. They will also heat up more quickly if under inflated

How in the hell do I know this, because I am 78 years old and started working on aircraft at age 15, both commercial and military. I am still a Technical Consultant for a large Aircraft Leasing Corp.

Thai Airways International may, in some people's opinion, not be best the best airline in the world. But, I can assure you they are a good and safe airline. I have managed aircraft that have been worked by Thai and we have aircraft at NOK that I do audits on.

Enough Aviation 101 !!

Well, well, it is nice to know we have a bonifide expert reading these posts. Just one thing. How can you vouch for Thai Air. If you don't have access to their maintenance books you can't know.

Thai Airways Plane's Tyre Bursts At Chiang Rai Airport
By Khaosod Online

tg.jpg

CHIANG RAI: -- An Airbus aircraft operated by Thai Airways has suffered a tyre explosion shortly after it landed at Mae Fah Luang International Airport in Chiang Rai province.

The flight, numbered TG 130, was traveling from Bangkok′s Suvarnabhumi Airport.

All 179 passengers and 10 cabin crew were unharmed from the incident, as the pilot successfully brought the plane to its docking bay.

The airport maintenance team later replaced the damaged tyre with a new one, and the aircraft resumed its operation shortly afterward, bringing another load of passengers to Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Reportedly, the airport maintenance team had replaced the impracticable tyre with the new one, and the aircraft continued to operate again shortly afterward.

Mr. Damrong Klong-Aksorn, the director of Mae Fah Luang Airport, told our correspondent he believes the wheel was prevented by its malfunctioned brake system from rolling as the aircraft touched down the runway. He insisted that the plane would function normally with the new set of tyre.

In September, a Thai Airways flight skidded off the runway at Suvarnabhumi Airport, injuring a number of passengers during the hectic evacuation. Several officials have blamed the incident on presence of malicious spirits.

On landing the wheel has locked up under heavy braking causing the tyre to flat spot consequently making it easy to blow.

"but only deflated" failing to add ... rather rapidly.

Did they paint over the Airline Logos?

No, this is a much simpler situation. A few rolls of duct tape (or a reasonable substitute) will do the trick.

The photo to a lay observer makes the Thai Chairman sound like a fool.

But then I believe he has already firmly established his credentials as an idiot by his previous poor judgement in PR announcements.

Pretty easy to see that the brakes remained locked on this wheel, and the tire was dragged in one position until the tire burst from lack of rubber. Not unusual to have this happen, but unusual to make up a story about what happened. Interesting to see what a 4 month investigation will unveil. Overweight stewardess?

If the wheel was locked by defective brakes how come we can see the site of the blow out? Just asking and seeking an intelligent answer.
