Smoking engine forces Delta plane to return to Atlanta after takeoff

A smoking engine forced a Delta Air Lines Inc. flight bound for London to return to Atlanta shortly after takeoff Wednesday afternoon, hours after another Delta takeoff was aborted due to engine trouble.

Firefighters at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport doused the plane’s engine, and no injuries were reported, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Passengers and bystanders posted images of the smoking engine on social media:
