Narrative:
The Boeing made a rather high approach to runway 18 and landed nosegear first. A nosegear tire burst and the aircraft bounced 3 times before a go-around was initiated. The aircraft landed safely on the second attempt, though it was difficult to keep the aircraft on the runway since nose wheel steering to the left was ineffective.
