http://www.khou.com/sharedcontent/VideoPlayer/videoPlayer.php?vidId=62980&catId=35 Not sure how but they blew 2 tires on take off and this video shows their landing. They made it look easy for sure. Hats off to the crew. I heard that an American Eagle E145 went off the runway today due to blow tires as well but I haven't tracked down any info on that yet.

I second that, just a perfect landing, although here's the downer according to the commentator..... :D "The bad news is, there's gonna be a mountin of paperwork to fill out"

Indeed - a very good landing - interesting to see they only employed the starboard engine reverser too...

They did so to help counteract the yawing from the left wheels being flat. Nice work though.
