Hawaiian Airlines plane lands in Seattle with engine on fire

Hawaiian Airlines plane lands in Seattle with engine on fire

A terrifying video posted on social media shows a Hawaiian Airlines plane's engine bursting into flames after landing at Sea-Tac International Airport in Seattle on Tuesday night.

Air traffic control noticed a fire in the left engine, airport spokesman Perry Cooper said.

Luckily, the flight from Paine Field, Washington had no passengers onboard and just the crew.

Hawaiian Airlines confirmed the incident on Twitter, saying that an A330 ferry flight "experienced a left engine issue on final approach at [Seattle Airport] tonight".

The fire was extinguished and no-one was injured.




Cooper says when the Port of Seattle Fire Department arrived on scene the fire was already out.

They looked out onto the runway to see an arriving Hawaiian Airlines plane catch fire.

The FAA is now investigating the incident.

Passengers waiting to board a separate flight at a nearby terminal witnessed the incident, with some recording it on their smartphones. A left engine fire reported upon landing was extinguished. "The aircraft is now being inspected".

Fifty-nine passengers and four crew members got out safely after the plane landed at Aspen. Flames were as long as the plane.
