A Singapore Airlines plane headed for Milan burst into flames not long after making a crisis arrival.

Flight SQ368, which withdrew at 02:05 nearby time on Monday (18:00 GMT Sunday), was two hours into the flight when the pilot declared there was a motor issue.

The plane turned back and arrived before the right motor of the Boeing 777 burst into flares.

Each of the 222 travelers and 19 group on board were securely emptied.

“We were noticeable all around for 60 minutes before we started to notice gas,” one traveler who gave his name as Chuan told the BBC.

“The pilot went ahead the radio and said that there was an oil spill in one of the motors and that they were going to turn and backtrack to Singapore.”

Chuan included that every one of the travelers were extremely quiet and that he really “backtracked to rest” after the declaration was made.

It was simply after he got off the flight that he understood how “near death” he and his better half had been.

Firefighters took around five to 10 minutes to quench the flares, he said.

Travelers will be exchanged to another airplane which is required to withdraw for Milan later on Monday, said Singapore Airlines in an announcement on Facebook.
