Funny how FA shows it in the air!

British Airways (BA) #2276 ? FlightAware

liveatc has it on tower archieves. 2310:55Z is when you want to start listening.

10:54 Cleared for takeoff
12:47 Stopping on the runway
13:03 Need the trucks
14:00 Evacuation.

First shot I saw was a side shot; I thought uncontained engine fire.

But this looks like brakes/tires from a high-energy abort.....coming from both sides.

Could it be both? Glad the injuries appear to be few and minor.

I agree. Doesn't look like anything is coming from left engine. Tire rubber on fire gives off a nice black smoke. It was about 105 degrees F out here today.

Quality reporting. At about 10 seconds you will learn Gatwick is located in London.... Ontario, Canada

Nicely done by the crew...

Left GE90 shredded:
