An eyewitness is describing what he saw after a tire fell from a United Flight that had just taken off at San Francisco International Airport.

The flight was eventually cancelled and the airline says it's working on providing customers with flight options today.

This is the latest in a series of United Airlines flight issues, many out of SFO.

Earlier this month, United CEO Scott Kirby addressed the issues, saying safety is "at the center of everything that we do."

"While they are all unrelated, I want you to know that these incidents have our attention and have sharpened our focus," Kirby said.

United has also said The Federal Aviation Administration will take a closer look at the airline's safety after the string of incidents.
