A Kingfisher Airlines flight with at least 75 passengers on board had a close shave late Wednesday as one of its tyres burst while landing in Raipur, an official said.

The tyre burst occurred as the Aizawl-Hyderabad flight IT 2804, which goes via Kolkata and Raipur, touched down in Raipur at about 8 pm, a Kingfisher Airlines official said.

While no one was injured, the flight was cancelled on technical grounds, she added.

Kingfisher has also cancelled its Raipur-Delhi flight (IT 3657), scheduled to take off later, due to technical reasons.
