    British Airways A 380 Lands With Square Tire

    Seems as if nobody has seen anything like this. Nor can they explain it. Interesting.

    Mystery as British Airways A380 plane lands in London with square tire

    (CNN)Square eggs, square watermelons and now... square tires?

    Here's an aviation mystery to sit alongside the Bermuda Triangle and the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.
    A British Airways Airbus A380 set off from Hong Kong on May 5 with 22 round wheels -- but apparently touched down at London Heathrow with a bizarre square-shaped tire.
    This extraordinary photo was uncovered by aviation news site The Aviation Herald, which reported that the British Airways crew received a tire pressure warning shortly after takeoff.
    The crew continued with the flight but requested that a tow tug be available at the London airport in case the aircraft was unable to taxi to the gate by itself.

    Did it stop of in Turkey? Maybe it a sympathetic throw back to the historic use of square bullets?
