An Endeavor Canadair CRJ-200 on behalf of Delta Airlines, registration N801AY performing flight DL-5068 from Wausau,WI to Detroit,MI (USA), was accelerating for takeoff from Wausau when the crew rejected takeoff at a turkey impacted the left wing of the aircraft. The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron.

A replacement CRJ-200 registration N8969A reached Detroit with a delay of 5:10 hours.

The FAA reported erroneously identifying the replacement aircraft (that arrived in Wausau only at 17:03Z and was in Detroit at 13:44Z, the occurrence time): "AIRCRAFT ABORTED TAKEOFF ROLL AFTER STRIKING A TURKEY DAMAGING LEFT WING, MOSINEE, WI." resulting in unknown damage. There were no injuries.

The occurrence aircraft N801AY is still on the ground in Wausau about 52 hours after the rejected takeoff.
