A Skywest Canadair CRJ-900 on behalf of Delta Airlines, registration N896SK performing flight OO-3863/DL-3863 from Salt Lake City,UT to Billings,MT (USA), was accelerating for takeoff from Salt Lake City's runway 35 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed. The aircraft slowed safely and came to a stop about 2000 meters/6600 feet down the runway. Emergency services responded and checked the aircraft. About 6 minutes after the rejected takeoff the aircraft vacated the runway and taxied to the apron.

A replacement Canadair CRJ-700 registration N641CA reached Billings with a delay of about 2 hours.

A passenger reported following the rejected takeoff the captain announced they had stopped due to an aft lavatory smoke alarm. There had been some smoke, however, they would return to the apron and disembark there. The passenger added the captain had also made an announcement he didn't want to jinx the passengers, however, the aircraft had been in the hangar prior to departure, so that they were able to immediately depart without the necessisity to de-ice and thus would bypass other aircraft waiting to be de-iced.
