TOKYO >> A runway was closed at one of Tokyo’s main airports Monday after a Hawaiian Airlines jet punctured its tires while making an emergency landing, forcing the cancellation of some domestic Japanese flights.

Eight tires blew out when the Airbus A330 returned to Haneda Airport after a display indicated a problem in the hydraulic system, Japanese media reported. None of the 293 passengers and crew on board were injured, the reports said, but the plane remained on the runway after daybreak as workers replaced the tires.

Japan Airlines cancelled some domestic flights, and warned of the possibility of other flight disruptions. Haneda Airport said in a statement on its website that international flights had not been affected.

An aviation expert told Japanese public broadcaster NHK that the brakes may not have functioned properly if there were a hydraulic system problem, causing the blowouts.

  • Let me update you SA. The aircraft blew a tire when it landed back at Haneda and the airport was forced to shut down the runway. This resulted in several Japanese domestic flights being cancelled. Source…….Yahoo News.

    • So, Hawaiian Airlines got 90% on time rating the other day, and they hardly ever fly into weather that would prevent a takeoff or landing.
      So,10% of the flights are delayed because of mechanical failure?
      That’s the airline I want to fly on while flying for hours and hours over open water……………….

        • There is nothing wrong with flying on Hawaiian. It’s a good airline. If you don’t like it, stick to United or Allegiant for real problems.

        • So they arrived back at Haneda aheads of schedule. Japanese aren’t going to travel on Hawaiian any more. Neither am I.

      • Yes, hydraulic fluid. I haven’t landed there since the AF used it in the late 50’s so I don’t know if it has changed, but you had to land over a sea wall which made you a tad high for pucker safety. I wonder if he had flaps or spoilers?

  • The departure time of flight 458 must have been 4:55 P.M. If it were 4.55 A.M., it would have flown for nearly 21 hours for a scheduled arrival of 1:32 A.M. on Monday.

  • Typical SA lousy reporting. Flt 458 leaves Haneda at 11:55 pm Sunday and arrives in Honolulu at 12:45pm Sunday, the same day, due to crossing the International Date Line.

    I’m flying on this flight in Three weeks. Hope everything is fixed by then.

  • Eight out of ten tires blew up upon landing. Oil leaked out all over runway. Runway closed for 10 hours. This story is all over the web with many more details than you provided SA. How come?

  • Too early to speculate but tires probably blew out since the ScareBus 330 doesn’t have fuel dumping capabilities so it likely landed very heavy.

    • I’d rather have a 767-400 , or the upcoming 777 extended version. going to be an awesome plane . Not to mention the 787-10 , come on Hawaiian support American made aircraft . They are competitive in pricing.
