A Delta Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-90, registration N910DN performing flight DL-743 from Philadelphia,PA to Detroit,MI (USA), was climbing through 11,000 feet out of Philadelphia when the left hand engine (V2525) seized (both N1 and N2 rolled back to zero) and EGT went over the limits. The crew shut the engine down, declared emergency and returned to Philadelphia for a safe landing on runway 27L about 22 minutes after departure. Emergency services found metallic debris in the tail pipe of the left hand engine.
