Latin American Wings Boeing B733 at Punta Cana burst tyre on takeoff
A LAW Latin American Wings Boeing 737-300, registration CC-ADZ performing flight H8-703 from Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) to Lima (Peru) with 156 people, was accelerating for takeoff beyond V1 when the crew felt a bump from the right main gear and suspected a burst tyre. The crew continued takeoff, climbed to safe altitude and entered a hold. A runway inspection confirmed tyre debris on the runway, the crew decided to burn off fuel and returned to Punta Cana for a landing on runway 09 about 1:50 hours after departure. The aircraft came to a stop on the runway on both right main wheels’ rims with both right hand main tyres torn off. The passengers disembarked onto the runway and were bussed to the terminal.
