INCIDENT Ho Chi Minh Airport grass caught fire following Vietnam Airlines A321 tire explosion – AIRLIVE

A Vietnam Airlines A321 has suffered a tire explosion on takeoff at Ho Chi Minh airport on Wednesday morning.

The flight number VN920 was due to depart for Phnom Pehn in Cambodia mid-afternoon, but a tire failure meant it couldn’t take off. In an unusual twist, the tire explosion appears to have caused a fire in the grass alongside the runway.

Vietnam Airlines flight #VN920 from Nha Trang experienced tire failure on landing.

The Airbus A321 (reg. VN-A392) landed on runway 25L at Ho Chi Minh City Airport when it experienced a tire explosion.

Hot rubber debris have set adjacent grass on fire but the A321 stopped safely and was not damaged.
