Biman Bangladesh Aircraft Incident Closes Dubai Airport

A Biman Bangladesh A310 had an accident while taking off at Dubai’s airport this morning, causing the facility to shut down for 8 hours.  Early reports suggest that 14 passengers were injured when the plane either burst a tire (tyre) or had its landing gear collapse on takeoff.  The airline has been a mess, cancelling routes due to mechnical issues with its aircraft.  This won’t help that problem.
