Default NWA 757 blows four tires in DTW

Northwest jet blows tires while landing in Detroit

ROMULUS, Mich. Four tires blew out on a Northwest Airlines jet today while it was landing at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
A Northwest spokeswoman says Flight 210 from Seattle was carrying 222 passengers when it landed at 3:53 p-m Eastern time. No injuries are reported.

Television reports showed the Boeing 757 stopped on a taxiway with buses lined up to transport the passengers to the terminal. Crews were using trucks to clear a runway of debris.

The incident occurred on the same day the airline's union mechanics walked off the job rather than take pay cuts and layoffs.

Northwest says it's premature to speculate on the cause of the blowout.
