Plane Forced To Make Emergency Landing After Wing Catches Fire

Plane Forced To Make Emergency Landing After Wing Catches Fire

A plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Hawaii after an engine failed and a wing caught fire. You can watch footage from on board the aircraft here:

The military chartered flight took off from Hickam Air Force Base in Honolulu on Saturday night but just minutes later the pilot declared an emergency engine failure and returned to the airfield.

Fortunately, the pilot was able to safely land the plane, however, footage taken by one passenger revealed the tense atmosphere within the dark cabin as what appeared to be flames flickered on the wing outside.

Residents below also reported hearing the sound of explosions as the aircraft passed over head.

Kevin Tynan, from Makiki, told KHON 2: "It was quite loud. I'm pretty sure I heard my neighbours down below talking about it.

"You can hear a lot of people, it was pretty intense for a while there."
