  • Air France plane makes emergency landing after engine blows out over the Atlantic

According to Flight Fleets Analyzer, F-HPJE was delivered to Air France in May 2010 and is equipped with a total of 516 seats.

The crew made a successful landing in the Canadian Goose Bay at 1:40 p.m. local time [16:40 GMT].

Video taken by one passenger shows a small piece of an engine dangling from the aircraft.

"We had a mid-air mayday when we lost one of our engines".

Air France said it is now working to re-route passengers to Los Angeles via the airline's connecting platforms in North America.




The landing happened "normally" on this military base, which is an airport said to release on the air routes across the atlantic.

Another said they heard a "loud thud and a lot of vibration" before looking out of the window at the horrific scene.

"The regularly trained pilots and cabin crew handled this serious incident perfectly", Air France officials said in a statement.

The passengers of the plane posted photos of the damaged engine.

"Technical issue identified, AF66 diverting per precaution to Goose Bay YYR for technical checks".
