'huge bang' leads plane to abort take-off, 8 injured

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The Airbus A320 belonging to Laudamotion was departing for Vienna at 8pm. It had begun accelerating along the runway for departure when a loud bang was heard.

The aircraft had not yet reached the critical “take-off decision speed” known as V1. The pilots safely aborted the departure and ordered an emergency evacuation as soon as the plane had stopped.

As is common when chutes are deployed for emergency evacuations, a number of the 169 passengers sustained minor injuries when leaving the aircraft.
