Summary

While on approach to land at Perth, the crew of the Boeing 727 notified air traffic control (ATC) that they required runway 21 instead of 24. This was in consideration of the wet runway conditions and as a possible precaution should they experience antiskid problems. They also advised ATC to expect a normal approach.

After parking the aircraft, the crew reported the loss of the inner left main wheel and requested rescue fire-fighting services to attend while the aircraft was secured. An inspection of the Perth runway did not find any debris.
