A Chautauqua Airlines Embraer ERJ-145 on behalf of Delta Airlines, registration N274SK performing flight RP-6079/DL-6079 from Bangor,ME to New York La Guardia,NY (USA) with 54 people on board, blew a tyre on departure from Bangor. The crew continued takeoff and decided to continue towards New York but decided to divert to New York's JFK Airport to take advantage of the longer runways available. The crew, suspecting up to three tyres might have been blown, performed a low approach to runway 13R to have ground observers check the landing gear which identified the left inboard main tyre was blown but the others intact and subsequently positioned for a safe landing on runway 13R.

The FAA reported the aircraft received minor damage after it blew one tyre on departure from Bangor.

Tyre fragments impacted the trailing edge of the left hand wing causing a panel to fracture and parts separate from the aircraft.
