LONDON – Pictures have emerged of the wheel in question that fell off the Boeing 747 Dreamlifter that departed Taranto, Italy, for Charleston yesterday.
@Daniel_Jambrina on Twitter showcased the picture being recovered by authorities seen in a wooded area of the airport.
The aircraft in question was N718BA, with the 747 Dreamlifter operating a flight under Atlas Air flight number of 5Y4231. The aircraft was bound for Charleston, North Carolina.
N718BA was in Taranto for the transportation of components for the 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
The aircraft landed in Charleston safely at 1915 UK time last night.
