Passengers on board a Delta Connect flight from Detroit to Milwaukee had a rough landing Monday morning at Mitchell International Airport. It turns out, the plane blew a tire upon landing.

Flight 2415 landed shortly after 10:30 a.m. and the tire on the right main landing gear blew out. The right and left main gear have two tires each. So just one tire on the right side had a problem.

Steven Brown, a passenger who talked with FOX6 News, described the landing after that like landing on a wash board.

There were 26 passengers and four crew members on board the plane. Nobody was hurt.

The passengers were taken to the terminal with a bus from the tarmac. The plane was towed to have a maintenance team repair the tire.
