The Aviation Safety Council (ASC) has been investigating the cause of a flat tire involving an EVA Airways cargo plane Saturday that left the aircraft partially damaged, but with no casualties reported, the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport said later that day.
The Boeing 747-400 jet, which arrived at the country's main gateway at 4:19 a.m., saw its main landing gear blow out during landing, the airport said, adding that the runway being used at the time will remain closed until the council completes its investigation.
All the crew were reported safe.
Visibility was 8,000 meters when the plane, which departed from Shenzhen, China, landed at Taoyuan in rainy weather, according to the airport.
No abnormalities were found on the runway or airport lighting facilities, the airport said.
