It is a picture that nervous flyers would rather not see outside their aircraft window. A shredded tire on the aircraft that is already well into its journey.

The picture was taken by a passenger on a Nok Air flight from Don Muang, Bangkok, to Nan province in the north yesterday, reported Sanook.

After thirty minutes the pilot of flight DD8826 that left Bangkok at 4.55pm decided to go back to Don Muang where the 81 passengers landed safely.

Airport director Petch Chancharoen said that the takeoff had been normal and that the pilot had made a request to return after half an hour for safety reasons.

Both the airport and the airline are investigating and the matter has been reported to aviation authorities, he said, adding that it definitely was not something lying on the runway that caused the tire to be damaged.

All passengers were transferred to another flight and were on their way by 6.30pm.
