The engine of a Delta Air Lines plane caught fire after it was forced to reject takeoff because of a bird strike. The incident took place on July 26.

A plane with over 200 people on board was speeding for takeoff from Denver's runway 08 and was headed to Atlanta. An engine fire was caused by a bird that was eaten by the left- hand engine.

According to the Avherald, the pilots aborted the takeoff at high speed and then turned around and flew away from the runway. The A321 blew the main gear tires and was towed to the apron.

Eye witnesses said that they saw smoke and flames coming from the plane. A passenger took a picture of the engine fire.

The passengers and crew on board evacuated the aircraft without using the slides after the engine caught fire. The passengers made it to Atlanta in another plane.

The FAA stated that the aircraft was damaged and that it was an accident.
