Narrative:The flight FR4215 rejected takeoff at high speed (around 105 knots), when the crew spotted a car on the runway ahead of them. The airplane stopped safely ahead of the car. The airplane could depart again about 60 minutes later after the brakes had cooled down and reached London with 80 minutes delay. ANSV have launched an investigation into the incident, that is thought to be the result of a miscommunication between the car driver and the control tower. The car belonged to a bird control official, who was inspecting the runway to scare birds off the runway. He raced off the runway when he realized the 737 had started their takeoff roll.
