    A tyre burst had occurred while charging the wheel of an Islander aircraft. The wheel hub made of magnesium-aluminium alloy had sheared off. Circumferential cracking parallel to the fracture surface of the hub was noticed. The failure of the hub was due to excessive pressure of air charged to the tyre.
