An Air China plane made an emergency landing after an engine fire and nine minor injuries outside

An Air China plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Singapore airport after a fire broke out in one of its engines. The pilot immediately sounded the alarm because he no longer had good visibility in the cockpit due to the developing smoke.

Changi Airport said in a statement on its Facebook page on Sunday that immediately after the emergency landing at 4:15 pm on Sunday, 146 passengers and 9 crew members of the Airbus A320 aircraft had to be evacuated. Nine people suffered minor injuries during the evacuation due to smoke inhalation and abrasions.

The plane came from Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China. One passenger told Chinese media that flight attendants urged passengers to remain calm and in their seats after some stood in panic.

Chinese media said that the fire in the left engine was extinguished immediately after landing. Air China said in a statement on social media on Monday that preliminary investigations showed that the cause was a mechanical fault in the engine.
