An Engine On A Malaysia Airlines Plane Burst Into Flames After Takeoff


Malaysia Airlines avoided what could have been a crisis after an engine caught fire just after takeoff.

According to Daily Mail, Flight MH148 left Melbourne, Australia for Kuala Lumpur June 12 around 2 pm local time.

The plane was in the air for about 20 minutes when one of the engines allegedly burst into flames.

Luckily, a statement from the airline said,

The pilot turned the affected engine off and circled Melbourne Airport numerous times before completing a safe landing.

Of the 300 passengers, no one was injured.

The airline was already under excessive scrutiny after losing two planes last year.
