SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (BNO NEWS) — A JetBlue passenger plane blew a tire while landing at Sacramento International Airport on early Thursday afternoon, federal officials said.
JetBlue flight 262 left Long Beach Airport at around 11.41 a.m. local time, about 22 minutes later than scheduled, and landed on Runway 16R at Sacramento International Airport at 12:50 p.m. local time.
Upon landing, at least one tire blew. “The tire began smoking or caught fire, and the crew deployed emergency slides,” said Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). “Passengers evacuated the plane using the slides.”
Gregor said there were no immediate reports of anyone being injured during the evacuation of the aircraft, an Airbus A320.
