A Southwest Airlines pilot had to abort a flight after engine issues during takeoff Wednesday evening at Midway Airport.
Flight 3229, which was set to depart from Midway to Boston, aborted takeoff after indications of a performance issue with one of the engines, according to a statement from the airline.
No one was injured. The 143 passengers were taken off the plane and boarded a different plane to Boston, which arrived at 2:45 a.m.
Video posted to social media shows flames coming out of the engine as the jet taxis down the runway.
A Southwest spokesperson says the company is awaiting reports on the incident and that she didn’t immediately have further details about what happened. She says the plane will be inspected.
