This is the moment a flight with a deflated tyre performed an emergency landing at Manchester Airport.
Flybe flight BE7212, which was travelling to Manchester from Dusseldorf, was surrounded by fire engines as it landed in Terminal Three as a precautionary measure.
The tyre blew out as it set off from Germany, but the aircraft managed to land safely at Manchester Airport at around 11.17am this morning (Wednesday).

There were 42 passengers on board the aircraft who have all since left the flight, alongside Flybe staff.
A spokesman from Flybe said: “Flybe can confirm that the above flight landed safely without incident at Manchester Airport this morning having received an indication that one of the tyres located in one of the main landing gear units was deflated.
“On arriving on stand, all 42 passengers disembarked without further incident with no adverse reaction.
“As a precautionary measure, the airport had put its emergency vehicles on standby.”
Seth Bennett, who was on the flight, tweeted: “An emergency landing of sorts at Manchester Airport – one of the tyres blew out on take off – very impressive landing from pilot – at Manchester Airport.”
