Paris to New York plane lands with blown tire
NEW YORK -- A jetliner bound from Paris to New York with over 200 people aboard landed safely after blowing one of its tires upon takeoff.
Delta spokesman Anthony Black says Flight 185 blew the tire while taking off from Charles de Gaulle airport at about 2 p.m. France time. He says tire debris on the runway and a fly-by confirmed the damage.
Officials at John F. Kennedy Airport were notified and fire and rescue units were sent out to meet the plane.
Black says the Boeing 767 landed without incident at JFK just after 4 p.m. Wednesday.
He says the passengers disembarked after workers inspected the aircraft. He says the two-engine jet has a total of 10 tires - four on each side in the rear and two on the nose.
