The fact is that a tire burst on the De Havilland Canada DHC-6-300 Twin Otter during the landing approach. The pilot managed to land safely, but there was no suitable equipment at the airport to get the stuck plane off the runway. It is noted that at this time several airliners were waiting for a free landing site.
