An Air Canada Boeing jet, flying from Toronto to Paris, was forced to make an emergency landing late Wednesday night following an engine fire shortly after takeoff. There were 389 passengers on Flight AC872, at the time of the incident.
Not long after Flight AC872 took off from Toronto Pearson International Airport, the event occurred, as reported by The New York Post. The plane encountered what Air Canada subsequently referred to as a “engine issue” as it took off for Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. Flames shot out of the plane's tail end due to an unidentified issue. The terrifying moments were caught on camera by witnesses, who show flames flaring and occasionally extending the length of the airplane as it rose.
One witness, who recorded the takeoff, reacted to the sight of the flames by exclaiming, “Holy crap! We’ve got an engine fire — holy s–t!” Since then, the video has gone viral, demonstrating the seriousness of the situation as seen by all on board.
The flight crew quickly took action to handle the incident after realizing there was an engine fire, the Post said. The pilots made the decision to make an emergency landing at Toronto Pearson International Airport. As part of routine emergency response protocols, fire personnel greeted the jet as it returned safely to the airport.
“After the aircraft landed, it was inspected by airport response vehicles as per normal operating processes, and it taxied to the gate on its own,” Air Canada said in a release, reported by New York Post. Neither the passengers nor the flight crew were reported injured.
After the event, travelers were quickly rescheduled for a another flight that was leaving later that evening. Despite the issue, Air Canada made sure that all 389 passengers were taken care of and that their travel arrangements were not too disturbed, the Post reported.
The Boeing aircraft that was involved in the incident was then removed from operation so that Air Canada's engineers and maintenance workers could conduct a full assessment. Before the aircraft is put back into service, the airline made it clear that a thorough assessment will be carried out to ascertain what caused the engine fire and to guarantee the aircraft's safety and airworthiness.
Air Canada’s official statement, as mentioned by The Post, highlighted the adherence to safety protocols and the swift action taken by the flight crew and emergency response teams. “Safety is our top priority, and our crews are trained to handle such situations. We commend the pilots and crew for their professionalism and composure during the incident,” the statement read.
The airline reminded the public and its clients that these kinds of occurrences are uncommon and that all of its planes undergo rigorous maintenance and safety inspections on a regular basis. Investigations are still ongoing to determine the precise cause of the engine fire; further information will be made public after the inspection is finished, latest reports suggest.
