El Al plane makes emergency landing al Ben Gurion Airport, blown tire to blame

Almost 200 passengers of an El Al flight bound for Kiev in Ukraine went through terrifying moments after the crew of the plane discovered one of the tires had exploded during take off from Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.

The Boeing 737, operated by El Al’s lowcost branch UP, was set to fly late Thursday night with 182 passengers aboard and had to turn back and land after airport crews discovered the remains of the blown off tire on the runway. The decision to return was taken only after take off, but the plane had to spend some time in the air, to unload most of the fuel, so it circled around Israel for the most part.

The plane’s landing was supervised by hundreds of people, from firemen to paramedics and security agents. No one was hurt in the forced landing, although dozens of passengers were reportedly treated by medics because of panic attacks.

The flight was marked by bad omens right from the beginning: the plane was supposed to take off from Tel Aviv at 18.30, but it departed only three hours later.
