All 16 main-gear tires on an Ilyushin Il-76 burst during a landing in Dubai on June 21 last year because the aircraft’s parking brake was engaged before touchdown, according to a final incident report released last week by the United Arab Emirates’ General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). The Ilyushin reportedly has no cockpit display system that would have indicated to the crew that the parking brake was on. No one aboard the aircraft was injured.
