Video: Delta 767 Blows Tire During Takeoff Roll

Delta Air Lines Flight 267 blew a tire on its right main landing gear while taking off from Detroit for a trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil on Wednesday.

The Boeing 767-300 apparently continued to its destination without any problems.

The incident came just four days after a Delta MD-80 blew a tire and caught fire after a hard landing in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon.
