The UNI Air ATR 72-600 aircraft, registered as B-17010, departed from Taipei Songshan Airport (TSA) towards Matsu Nangan Airport (LZN), Taiwan. As it approached LZN airport, the pilot noticed that two tires were damaged and decided to turn the aircraft back to Taipei where it made an emergency landing.
