On 20 December 2004, ground engineers noticed that the number-2 tyre of the Boeing 737-800 aircraft was damaged, showing sidewall separation and shredding of tyre shoulders.

The ATSB commenced a category 4 investigation to determine if safety was compromised, as this tyre damage was similar to that being investigated in occurrence 200405118, which occurred on the previous day. The 20 December 2004 occurrence is being investigated as part of the previous day’s occurrence investigation.

Status: Downgraded the occurrence to category 5 and investigation discontinued as a separate investigation.
