Video: Belfast International Airport - Flights arriving but disruption remains after plane tyres burst on runway


There is still significant disruption at Belfast International Airport after a cargo plane got stuck on the runway.

The incident happened just before 6am on Tuesday with the plane left stranded at the junction between the two runways, causing major disruption with the airport having to be closed.

By 9am, the airport was opened for arrivals, while departures were expected to be disrupted through the day.

Alan Whiteside, operations manager at the airport, said using a shortened runway some flights were able to land.

The Air Accident Investigations Branch is to investigate.
