Singapore MAX report released

Air safety authorities in Singapore have concluded their investigation into an incident at the country’s Changi Airport.

On December 3, 2021, at approximately 1436hrs local time, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 suffered tyre damage to both its left main landing gear wheels. The Singapore Transport Safety Investigation Bureau (TSIB) said that neither of the pilots noticed any anomalies during the landing on Runway 02L and the damage was only discovered after the jet had arrived at its parking bay.

The aircraft involved, 9V-MBF (c/n 44250), was operating a scheduled Singapore Airlines round-trip service from Changi (SIN) to Phnom Penh (PNH) in Cambodia and back to Changi. The TSIB notes that the aircraft departed with its antiskid and autobrake system inoperative, as allowed under the minimum equipment list (MEL).
