WATCH VIDEO: Passenger jet's engine bursts into flames mid-flight

01 May 2016

The fire started shortly after the plane, an Airbus A330-223, took off.

It must have been an absolute nightmare for passenger’s onboard Delta flight 188 from Beijng, China to Boston, America when the flights' engines went up in flames during their flight.

At this stage its being reported the blaze was caused by a bird hitting the right engine of the aircraft. Luckily there was enough time to turn back to Beijing and carry out an emergency landing.
