Dramatic footage emerges of tyre explosion on aircraft tug at Hong Kong airport as plane prepares for flight to Seoul


A tyre exploded and flew off an aircraft tug on Tuesday as the machine was pulling a plane at Hong Kong airport, endangering workers nearby, it has emerged.

At least one worker was driving the tug and two “wing walkers” were standing either side of the Hong Kong Airlines plane when the explosion took place. It happened only seconds after the aircraft began pushing back from the departure gate for its flight to Seoul.
