A Ryanair Boeing 737-800, registration EI-EFC performing flight FR-6763 from Tenerife South,CI (Spain) to Bournemouth,EN (UK), was accelerating for takeoff from Tenerife's runway 07 at high speed (about 150 knots over ground). The aircraft slowed safely stopping the aircraft on the runway about 870 meters/2850 feet short of the runway end, however, the brakes overheated and locked up disabling the aircraft on the runway. There were no injuries.

Spain's ATC reported the crew rejected takeoff for safety reasons, the brakes overheated and locked up.

A passenger reported the aircraft suddenly veered right, then the brakes came on really hard. Fire crews were unable to cool the brakes down. They disembarked about an hour later and were bussed to the terminal.

The airport remained closed for about 4.5 hours until the aircraft could be towed off the runway.
