Tragedy was averted on Sunday afternoon as the rear tyre of a Yola/Abuja bound Max air plane bursted.
The aircraft Boeing 734 seven series was reportedly carrying no fewer than one hundred and fifty passengers was lost one of the rear tyres while taking off from Yola.

“The pressure was much and the plane couldn’t get balance until an intervention by ground staffs.
