Air Force T-38 from Beale AFB blows tire on landing at Mather

A T-38 Talon aircraft from Beale Air Force Base sustained minor damage after a tire blew out upon landing at Mather Airfield this afternoon.

About 1:30 p.m., the aircraft, carrying two pilots, was on a routine training mission known as "touch and go's", when upon landing at Mather, a tire blew out, according to a Beale Air Force Base news release. Officials said crosswinds pushed the aircraft, causing a second tire to blow out.

Officials said no injuries were reported.

Beale Air Force Base safety and maintenance crew members are en route to Mather. The cause of the blow-out is under investigation.
