Blown engine delayed flights at Birmingham airport

BIRMINGHAM - AL -

All runways at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport are now open.  A runway was closed temporarily Thursday morning after a flight had technical difficulties prior to a flight's take off.  Passengers on Delta flight #667 tell ABC 33/40 take off was aborted after what the passenger called "a loud boom."  We're told the plane was taken back to the terminal because an engine blew.

Debris from that engine was scattered along Runway Six.  Airport crews rushed to clean up the debris.  The runway was closed for a short period, which caused some delays.
