Saw down in MKY yesterday where a NJA 119QS was doing high speen taxies down runway to burn off fuel to be able to carry load out of there and on fifth run down runway blew both mains due to excessive brake heat. Is this normal procedure for burning off fuel. Makes more sense to set parking brake and pull power than do high speen runs on runway. it closed airport for 6 hours till mx could replace tires and wheels on the runways and then remove it.

Thermal the tires!! Wow, sounds like BS to me. Nobody uses this kind of procedure to burn off fuel. Sounds like you trying to spread negative ******************** about NJA because you weren't hired here.

I'm not saying tires can't blow, I would be surprised if it happened the way you suggest.

I don't doubt the possibility of one of our jets closing a rwy due to blown tire(s), but the story line is "questionable".

Maybe it was doing a brake burn. Are you sure it was burning off fuel?

Doesn't sound like they were trying to burn off fuel to me...

I have no idea why you would do 5 high speed taxi's either. MX checks or something? Doesn't make any sense.

What is a brake burn o2bflyn? Never heard of it.

Can't speak to why they were doing what they were doing but thermally blowing tires from high speed taxi runs has happened before.

In my past life at a Fortune 500 flight department, the company idiot that everybody hated flying with went out in the Hawker 700 at maintenance department request for some high speed taxi runs. If I recall correctly, they were trouble-shooting an anti-skid anomaly.

After the FOURTH run within about 20 minutes down a 10-thousand foot runway at our large, four-runway, warm climate, very busy home airport, three of the four fuse plugs blew out, disabling the runway for the better part of an hour. Guess he forgot that whole chapter in the Flight Manual about brake energy limits and cooling times.

It sucks, but it can happen.

I realize that cl604drv is a vasty superior pilot to everyone who has ever stepped into a cockpit since the Wright brothers. We all know that 604god has never, ever made a mistake. If he ever does, god I hope I'm standing there.

However to come onto a public website and bash someone when you know nothing about what happened is BS and a douch bag move. You may have been there and think you know what happened, but doubt you know the real story.

Some day I hope to be as good a pilot and as wise, as the all mighty cl604drv. One can only hope that I make it to that level of airmanship and greatness, wish me luck guys.
