Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental Test Plane Blows Tire on Landing in Seattle
A Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental test aircraft (N6067E) blew a tire while landing at Boeing Field in Seattle Saturday afternoon.
Boeing’s largest jet was completing only its third test flight when it landed on runway 13R and blew a tire on its second main landing gear bogey.
The aircraft taxied off the runway to taxiway bravo, where it was met by emergency vehicles. After checking it over, the plane taxied to its stall on the Boeing ramp under its own power.
