Really? Nobody checking for these things now?

They only check AFTER something happens. No need to check before because everything is fine. whistling.gif

In this case, correct. Flat spotting a tire is usually where the troubleshooting starts. Normally you just don't get unlucky enough to skin a tire all the way down until it blows, though.

True thry are a rare event.

The only time I've seen a skid blowout, was on a Tornado that had had a hyd system failure, which in that particular day dropped the anti-skid system out of the loop. The pilot wore out all main tyres down to the rim and into the rims/wheels. The arrested

landing using the emergency hook had been botched, which didn't help but that's another story.

The attached photo shows a flat spot at area where tire became - to borrow the term, IMPRACTICABLE. It clearly flat spotted. Look at the groves on the tire. The area where the tire became IMPRACTICABLE does not have any grove!!!

That means, it is not a tire problem but a brake problem - meaning "IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN!".

Don't think I will be Flying Thai - anytime soon...

Qantas fliers take note.

Fears over safety as Qantas closes Avalon facility, axes 300 jobs

Qantas' move to send more maintenance work overseas - at the cost of hundreds of Victorian jobs - will make the airline less safe, one of the nation's biggest unions warns.

Qantas on Friday axed 300 engineering jobs at its Avalon heavy maintenance facility near Geelong, as the airline moves work on its remaining 747 jumbos to Brisbane and overseas.

Ben Davis, state secretary of the Australian Workers Union, said the sackings were likely to see more work sent offshore. This would result in the airline becoming less safe, he said.
