Default DJ 737 in OOL

Can anyone shed some light on the DJ 737 parked at OOL.

I hear it had a flap problem and a rather nasty landing. Some might say it sustained some damage to the landing gear.

VH-VBT tyre blowout

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VH-VBT suffered a tyre blowout on landing just after 1500 local at OOL. Believe aircraft taxied to the bay OK but runway was closed for about 10 minutes to remove debris.

It might take this long to get a tyre to the affected airport, though.

I think you'll find it's actually VBF in OOL.

When a tyre bursts on a 737 it has been known to do a fair bit of damage.Flaps gear doors and other structure is probably damaged. the reason why it might be there for so long.
