The Electra Airways Boeing 737-400 series aircraft departed Cologne in Germany at 11am local time on Monday. Shortly after takeoff, ground crews in Cologne discovered debris from a blown out tire left behind on the tarmac.

Military jets sent to inspect the damaged plane reported one of its back left tires destroyed.
