Delta Emergency Landing?


#1

This picture was just posted by Rebecca Lobo of ESPN on Twitter. Sounds like it was headed to LAX

“Just told by another passenger that something flew into left engine & it was on fire the 20 minutes we were on air.”

This was at Midway Island.

“Delta flight 1323 from ATL to LAX. Left engine caught fire on takeoff ( think bird flew into engine). Returned to ATL.”

“It’s really fast and the landing is hard. And it’s followed by a sprint away from the plane in the dark. Good times.”

After landing they were put on a 4am flight and a $100 voucher… this would be the later flight but not the problem one.
