On July 1, a peculiar incident occurred when an Emirates Airbus A380 travelling from Dubai to Brisbane touched down at Brisbane International airport with a sizable hole.
According to reports, the crew of flight EK430 believed a tyre rupture after hearing a loud "boom" shortly after takeoff from Dubai International Airport at 03:11 GST.
The crew on board informed Brisbane air traffic control that they believed there had been a tyre blowout shortly after takeoff from Dubai international airport. The team then asked for standby emergency assistance. The aircraft was dragged to the airport's apron after a more than 13.5-hour journey, and a hole could be seen in the fuselage's left wing.
According to reports, the aircraft's nose wheel may have been missing a bolt when it touched down in Brisbane. Damage's origin has not yet been determined. After the event, the aeroplane is still in place.
