Plane makes emergency landing in Brisbane after mid-air incident
A plane carrying passengers has made an emergency landing after flames appeared to shoot from its engine mid-flight over Brisbane.
Bright flashes lit up the night sky and concerned residents below on Friday.
Amber Windle feared the worst after she was drawn outside her Hillcrest home by the noise.
“It sounded like it was going to explode, it was so loud,” she said.
“As it got closer I could tell that it was coming out of the plane, so I thought it was missiles because we’re so close to the army barracks as well.”
The plane had 48 people on board, as the plane’s engine stalled and choked.
