Close shave on landing

A light aircraft from Malaga had a close shave on landing yesterday when a tyre burst.

An eyewitness said the aircraft appeared to be going quite fast and may have had to brake fast as it was reaching the end of the runway.

The Pilot of the Cesna 501 and passenger were not harmed.

It appears this aircraft has been here before.

An easyJet flight which contacted the Tower to decide if it should go to Malaga due to the the weather, very quickly had it's mind made up when told of the incident.
