If your plane aborts its takeoff, this “normal” fire may happen on your flight too!
This video shows a Delta aircraft which aborted take off, and then reported a gear fire. This is, apparently, an entirely normal result of a high speed aborted take-off.
The brakes will store the energy which may cause them to catch fire. I wonder whether the passengers even realised what was going on?
