Aer Lingus flight #EI123 encountered engine problems while takeoff to Chicago.
Aer Lingus A330 suffered an engine problem during takeoff.
The aircraft (reg. EI-FNG) lined up to runway 28L at Dublin when crew switched to full thrust to takeoff. But a loud band and lost of thrust forced pilots to reject the takeoff.
A full scale emergency involving fire brigade was stood down a short while later.

The Airbus A330 returned to stand with fire brigade following close behind. Passengers were accommodated on another plane some hours after to resume their trip to Chicago.
