In the video, one of the plane’s tires leaves a trail of smoke in the air and eventually falls to the ground.
A Twitter user who posted the video said, “A tire on the Boeing 747-400 Dreamlifter caught fire and lost its wheel during takeoff.” The tire bounces several times after hitting the ground.
However, this did not prevent the plane from landing safely at the destination airport. According to media reports, the plane landed successfully in North Carolina, USA.
