An Amer­i­can Air­lines Boe­ing 737 flight was forced to abort take­off from Tam­pa Inter­na­tion­al Air­port on Wednes­day after one of its wheels began to smoke and even­tu­al­ly burst into flames. 

Footage of the inci­dent, cap­tured by a plane spot­ter, shows the air­craft gain­ing speed on the run­way when the right tire sud­den­ly starts smok­ing and then erupts in flames.

Passengers Evacuated, No Injuries Reported


The Amer­i­can Air­lines Flight 590, which was set to depart for Phoenix, Ari­zona, had 174 pas­sen­gers and 6 crew mem­bers on board at the time of the incident. 

Emer­gency respon­ders were quick­ly dis­patched, and all pas­sen­gers and crew were safe­ly evac­u­at­ed from the plane and bused to the ter­mi­nal. For­tu­nate­ly, no injuries were reported.

FAA Investigation Underway


The Fed­er­al Avi­a­tion Admin­is­tra­tion (FAA) has launched an inves­ti­ga­tion into the inci­dent to deter­mine the cause of the wheel malfunction. 

Air­port oper­a­tions at Tam­pa Inter­na­tion­al were not sig­nif­i­cant­ly dis­rupt­ed, and pas­sen­gers were trans­ferred to a replace­ment flight after the incident.
