A DHL International Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration A9C-DHU performing freight flight ES-512/D0-512 from Lahore (Pakistan) to Bahrain (Bahrain), was accelerating for takeoff from Lahore's runway 36L when the crew rejected takeoff due to the failure of the left hand engine (CF6). The aircraft slowed but burst a number of main tyres on both main struts before coming to a stop on the runway. The aircraft was disabled.

As Lahore's primary runway is currently unavailable due to work in progress, the airport needed to be closed.
