Las Vegas-bound flight aborts takeoff in Denver
The Associated Press
Company spokeswoman Olga Romero told The Denver Post ( http://bit.ly/WSd8Ch) that no fire was found but that the pilot stopped the Monday afternoon flight as a matter of procedure. Romero says mechanics were trying to determine why the warning light came on.
The plane was departing Denver International Airport with 137 passengers and five crew members. No one was injured, and passengers were moved to a later flight.
Airport spokeswoman Cyndi Karvaski says it is common for brakes to overheat and tires to blow out when a pilot stops a plane quickly before takeoff.
