Drama As Engine Of Air France Flight From Paris To Los Angeles Destroyed Over The Atlantic

An Air France flight from Paris to Los Angeles was forced to make an emergency landing in Canada on Saturday after an engine apparently disintegrated over the Atlantic.Passengers said they heard a thud and vibrations rattled through the cabin as the A380 plane lost altitude.“We heard a big popping sound and the airplane basically dropped and it was trembling. You could definitely tell something was different and it wasn’t just turbulence,” Sarah Eamigh told the New York Daily News, adding that the plane shook for 20 minutes before stabilising.One of the four engines on the Airbus A380 flight AF66 failed west of Greenland on Saturday. No-one was injured in the incident, but passengers remained on board hours after the landing. The plane was carrying 496 passengers and 24 crew at the time, an Air France spokesperson told AFP news agency.
