Another Commercial Jet Catches Fire Just Days after Boeing Mid-Air Emergency

A United Airbus A320 engine caught fire shortly before takeoff at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Monday, just days after a reported major “turbulence” incident on a Boeing flight.

A passenger posted a video showing smoke coming from the plane’s wing as it taxied for takeoff on the runway.

“I felt the impact on my window. As I looked, the engine was on fire and smoke was coming out,” passenger Ivan Paloalto told ABC 7 Chicago.

ABC 7 Chicago reported:

A plane’s engine caught fire at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Monday afternoon, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The FAA said United Flight 2091 to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport aborted takeoff after catching fire around 2 p.m. while still on the taxiway. Arrivals were temporarily halted into O’Hare.

United said the plane, an Airbus A320, was towed to the gate. All 148 passengers deplaned and no injuries were reported.

United said those passengers were being put on a different plane to make their trip, and delays were minimal.

The news comes a little under 48 hours after twelve people were injured when a Qatar Airways plane flying from Doha to Dublin ran into turbulence, leaving eight passengers hospitalized, adding to the long list of recent Boeing incidents.

Flight QR017, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, landed shortly before 1 p.m. Dublin time (8 a.m. EDT), Dublin Airport said in a statement.

The plane was by emergency services, including airport police and the fire and rescue department, “due to six passengers and six crew … reporting injuries after the aircraft experienced turbulence while airborne over Turkey.”

Eight passengers were taken to hospital.

In another incident, a United Airlines Boeing 737 landed at an Airport in Oregon with a missing exterior panel.

Another United Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 suffered gear failure and crashed off the runway at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Meanwhile, a United Airlines Boeing 777 plane was forced to make an emergency landing after it lost a tire during takeoff.

In January, a plane door of an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 MAX blew out in mid-air.
