Boeing 747 Engine Catches Fire Minutes after Takeoff

A Boeing 747 cargo plane experienced an engine malfunction on Thursday, causing it to spew flames just moments after take-off, forcing it to return to Miami airport.

No one was injured in the incident, according to Reuters.

Atlas Air Flight 5Y095 was flying to San Juan, Puerto Rico, when engine trouble occurred.

“We have an engine fire,” one of the plane crew said in a mayday call.

“Mayday, mayday … We have an engine fire,” the audio recording obtained by WTVJ-TV said.

“Request access back to the airport. No, we’ll go ahead and land. We have five souls onboard.”

A crew member making the call said the engine two caught fire “on the climb out” of the airport.

A video posted to X showed a plane trailing fire.

“The crew followed all standard procedures and safely returned to MIA,” said Atlas Air, the company that owns the plane.

According to date of the website FlightAware, the plane took off at 10:32 p.m. and landed at 10:46 p.m.

The news comes just weeks after an Alaska Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Friday night after its passenger window blew open.

The Daily Fetched reported:

The Boeing 737 Max was heading to Ontario, California w, when a large window busted open, causing severe depressurization.

Alaska Airlines CEO Ben Minicucci said in a statement:

“Following tonight’s event on Flight 1282, we have decided to take the precautionary step of temporarily grounding our fleet of 65 Boeing 737-9 aircraft.”

“My heart goes out to those who were on this flight – I am so sorry for what you experienced.”

Video footage showed the plane in the air with the window open as oxygen masks angled over passengers’ seats.
