Vueling flight VY2212, an Airbus A320-214, aborted the takeoff on runway 24L at Barcelona Airport (BCN) after the captain's airspeed indicator showed a deviation from the other airspeed indicators.

During takeoff a bird struck the aircraft and the indicated airspeed dropped practically instantaneously by about 30 KIAS. At no time did the aircraft display any system failure message in the cockpit.
After braking to a complete stop on the runway centreline about 600 m from the end of the runway, 3 of the 4 main landing gear wheels were flat (the fuse that releases the tyre pressure when the tyre temperature exceeds a certain threshold was automatically activated) and the brakes showed a very high temperature indication in the cockpit. The aircraft could not move under its own power and the commander decided to make an emergency evacuation.

During the emergency evacuation 19 passengers sustained minor injuries. The aircraft was undamaged.
