KLM's PH-AOB (A330-200) is AOC at Sint-Maarten (SXM) as KL-789 since Friday evening. PH-AOB arrived as KL-789 from AMS at 15h02 local time, and was supposed to continue to Willemstad (Curacao) at 19h30 local time (triangle flight further to Amsterdam).

The Dutch repair team with parts for PH-AOB will arrive at SXM at 15h35 local time today (they're on KL-789 A330-200 PH-AOC, now airborne). Thus, and depending on the time needed for the repair, the delay for Friday's passengers will probably exceed 48 hours.

(local time at SXM is UTC -4)

On 25 August, a Flybe De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 (G-ECOH) operated flight BE2111 between Edinburgh and London Heathrow, United Kingdom. Upon landing, the aircraft suffered a tire burst on its right-hand main landing gear.

Some local spotters noticed a few go-arounds.

"Tire" in the US, "tyre" in all other English-speaking countries ;)

Since you asked: I seem to remember looking into this some time ago, and learning that the Brits started out with "tire", only to change to "tyre" later on. Surprising as it might seem to some, I cannot be really bothered.

In Queen's English, a lorry has tyres and drives on a motorway.

In Americanese, a truck has tires and drives on a highway.

Two different countries, separated by the same language.
(Besides not driving on the same side.)
At top political level there are also some capillary distinctions but this remark is primarily superficial.
