CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A Delta passenger jet headed to Detroit aborted a takeoff at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport because of a possible bird strike.

Delta officials say the jet was taking off shortly before 2 p.m. Thursday when the crew of the Airbus A320 reported the possible hit.

No one was hurt.

Several Charlotte Fire Department trucks were called to the scene, but there was no sign of fire or other major problems with the aircraft.

The jet remained on a ramp next to a runway for about 30 minutes while the brakes cooled before it was towed back to the concourse.

Delta said the 130 passengers were put on another flight to Detroit.
