Plane Catches On Fire Mid-Flight

Flames are exactly what you don’t want to see when you look out your airplane window. But that’s exactly what people on this Southwest flight traveling from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles saw when the engine caught fire in the air.

Just after takeoff passengers heard a loud explosion. And although that’s not normal, they didn’t expect to find flames shooting out of the engine when they looked. Luckily, people on board said the pilot remained calm and managed to make an emergency landing where they were moved on to another plane.

Hopefully, everyone managed to get where they were going despite the crazy detour and there weren’t any already nervous fliers on board! What would you do if the plane you’re in caught on fire?!
