China Eastern flight lands safely in Sydney with hole torn in engine
Jun 12 2017
A China Eastern Airlines flight from Sydney to Shanghai returned to after a massive hole was detected in one of its engines, an airport official said on Monday.
An audio recording of the pilot's communication with Sydney Tower air traffic control captured the mid-air emergency, with the pilot clearly explaining the gravity of the situation.
The audio sent social media into a spin, with some suggesting the pilot was trying to say "fault" and others pointing to a slip of the tongue.
Images showed a vertical hole in the side of the engine.
The plane landed safely at Sydney Airport where it was greeted by emergency services on the tarmac. "The returned aircraft is now under investigation at Sydney Airport". "I'm glad we're all safe", a passenger said. "At its climbing speed, it will be getting faster and faster and that may have been the trigger to rip off some of that engine casing", he said. Oh, I was scared. Yes.
