There's a money maker. 8 pax, 5 crew, and 4 blowouts. Service should have been good-right up till landing!!

A little more detail here: it may not have veered off, just stuck on runway...

Either one of the pilots had their feet on brakes or, while looking at the hydraulics page they chose to even out the differences between system 1 and 2 which you can do by pumping the brakes even in flight but the unintended consequences are not desirable...

It isn't the pumping of the brakes that does you in since that system deactivates in the air... what gets you is when you try to even it out by setting and releasing the parking brake in the air... once you set it in the air (for some reason I can't remember) it doesn't release.

Trust me, at TransStates there was a guy who pumped the brakes and although it doesn't activate them it transfers the fluid from 1 system to another, I can't remember which to which. According to his FO they were able to even out the hydraulic levels in both systems. When they landed they blew out all the main tires.

no no no. It landed, blew out the tires, then veered onto the taxiway. Good thing nothing more happened.

Of course. You might have a flat on a taxiway, but 4 blowouts are reserved for the runway.

JC- spam alert.... sent a note to FA.
BTW, if it takes 5 months to fire her, she must work for a government agency- and that would be fast work.
