Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


An ATR-72 cargo plane, was performing a flight in Texas (US) and was lined up and waiting for departure on the runway when the pilots decided to return to the apron due to a system malfunction. During the taxi back to the apron , the pilots saw smoke start to come from the left main gear.

When the aircraft stopped on the stand a large quantity of smoke started coming from the left main gear tyres and they burst because of the heat. Emergency services sprayed foam on them and the smoke stopped.

The two pilots successfully shut down the engines and left the plane without injury.
