A couple of days back, a Hawaiian Airlines plane landed at Seattle- Tacoma International Airport with one of its engines on fire.

The Airbus A330 was traveling “as a ferry flight, meaning that it was only ferrying crew members — and not Hawaiian Airline passengers“, according to CBS News. The plane was flying from Paine Field (PAE) to Seattle.

People at the airport saw the events taking place with some of them even sharing videos on Twitter.

Hawaiian Airlines mentioned that a left wing fire was put out while the FAA is saying that the plane had a right engine fire.

Fox News reports that, “By the time that fire crews had arrived at the aircraft, the flames had already been extinguished.”

Luckily, nobody onboard was injured and the FAA is investigating.
