Boeing / MDD: Tire Blows out on MD-80,
causes engine fire.

AIR LINES newsletter reported on page 2 of the October 22, 1999 letter that a

"Delta Air Lines jet bound for Atlanta from Rhode Island made an emergency landing in Boston, Wednesday night, after debris from a blown tire apparently caused problems with one of its engines. Passengers and witnesses said they heard loud bangs and saw flames coming from an engine on the MD-80 just after it took off from T.F. Green Airport in Warwick RI. Reports quoted some passengers as saying smoke in the cabin caused many of those on board Flight 2049 to panic. At least two had to be treated at a hospital for anxiety attacks."
