Passengers Record Dramatic Scenes As 'Plane's Engine Catches Fire' Mid-Flight

A passenger captured the moment a 'plane's engine caught fire' mid-flight, filling the cabin with smoke.

Passengers were crying, praying and chanting as the Aero Contractors flight to Lagos, Nigeria, began to fill with thick smoke, reports The Sun.

The plane is said to have got into trouble around 20 minutes into the flight, meaning the 53 people on board had to go through 35 more minutes. Absolutely terrifying.

In the clip, passengers can be heard coughing were reportedly told to use handkerchiefs to cover their mouths.

She said that when the plane landed emergency services were already waiting on the runway. She also wrote that people on board began chanting: 'sue, sue, sue'.

"Funny thing is no apology or explanation was given to anyone," she wrote.

A spokesman for Aero Contractors said: "The cabin crew reassured the passengers and handed out wet towels to them as a precautionary measure for such incidents."

An investigation by The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) is now being carried out, according to local media.
