BURBANK, Calif. (KABC) -- A Southwest Airlines airplane blew a tire while landing in Burbank Wednesday afternoon.

The nose wheel tire on the plane reportedly blew as it landed at Hollywood Burbank Airport around 4 p.m.

The plane, which originated in Sacramento, was able to taxi to the gate on its own after the mishap.

Airport officials say the pilot was able to land so smoothly despite the blown tire that most passengers were unaware of the problem.
