    Background: U.S.A.: HAWAII, HONOLULU

    36 people were injured when the take-off of a United Airlines Jumbo jet was aborted on the runway of Honolulu International Airport. An airline spokesman says the captain of the flight bound for Los Angeles, California, heard a loud explosion during take-off and decided to abort the flight. Five of the plane's tyres blew out, driving a shard of metal through a fuel tank. It is not clear at what point the tyres blew, according to the airline spokesman. The passengers were injured as they evacuated the craft. Witnesses say the emergency ladders for evacuation were not firmly secured..
