Terrified Passengers Look On In Horror As Flames Burst From Plane's Wing

Terrified Passengers Look On In Horror As Flames Burst From Plane's Wing

A commercial flight was forced to turn back just an hour into its journey after fire and smoke began billowing from one of the aircraft's wings.

Terrifying footage taken by passengers onboard the Philippine Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Manila, capital of the Philippines, shows horrified travellers staring out of the window as flames erupt from the plane's wing.

After being alerted to the problem, pilots turned the plane around and made their way back to Los Angeles International Airport. Luckily, no one was injured as a result of the malfunction and the plane landed safely on Thursday, 21 November.

One passenger shared a video capturing his little daughter Maui's reaction to the plane taking off, when he noticed flashes of flames coming from an engine outside their window.

In the video, he says: "Never seen that before. Oh my God. It's blowing fire out of there. I've never seen that before. That doesn't sound good. It doesn't look good."

In a statement from Philippine Airlines, the firm said the aircraft had suffered a 'technical problem in one of its engines shortly after take-off' which resulted in flames spewing from the right wing.
