News: Delta Air Lines Flight 2284




On the 28th of May 2011, aDelta Airlines MD-88 caught fire as it was attempting to land at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport from Pittsburgh International Airport.All 49 passengers and crew survived,but 4 received minor injuries as they were evacuating the plane.It seems till now that the plane had blew out at least one tire and had an engine fire upon landing saturday afternoon.All passengers had safely evacuated via the rear stairwell,and the fire  department sprayed foam to extinguish the plane's right engine on a runway.First signs show that the brakes overheated on the taxiway,which later caused the fire but information is still scarcely to say something for sure.
