Pilots turned back after 20 minutes of flight over report on tire damage

The passenger plane Boeing 737 heading from Tel-Aviv to Kyiv successfully landed in Kyiv airport of Boryspil at 9 am. At a first attempt to reach Ukrainian capital, the pilots had to ask for urgent landing after 20 minutes of flying.

The plane departed from international airport Ben-Gurion late on Thursday. Soon after the departure airport crew discovered tire remains on the runway, supposedly from plane's chassis.

Rescue and firefighting services were waiting for Boeing to land. 182 people aboard a plane are safe and sound. No one was hurt, yet several passengers required psychological assistance afterwards.
