Photos of Wheel and Tyre Damage to Qantas A380

Remember the Qantas A380 that burst its tyres upon landing at Sydney on 30 March?

Well here are some photos sent to me of the damage of the QF32 flight. Not only were the tyres shredded, there was substantial damage to the undercarriage with the bottom portions of some wheels entirely chipped off.

It is rumored the incident occurred due to break failure, but Qantas has not confirmed this. If you know more about the photos’ origin, please let me know.
