Moment plane engine in United States failed caught on camera

Delta Flight 1425 was headed to Baltimore airport when an engine problem forced it to make an emergency landing

The Delta Air Lines flight was travelling from Atlanta to Baltimore on Monday (local time) when it was forced to land in Raleigh, North Carolina, roughly halfway through the one-and-a-half hour trip.

Almost 150 passengers were on board the flight headed from Atlanta to Baltimore when one of the plane's engines started having a problem.

In addition to the flight crew, 148 passengers were onboard the MD-88, which was bound for Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI).

A passenger Avery Porch told CNN that after they heard the boom they just saw all this smoke come up into the cabin, and that's when they really started freaking out. "It [the plane] started slowing down a bit [and] the air cut off", she said.

Delta provided passengers with a $30 food voucher while they waited to be re-routed on alternative flights.

"I just pulled out my phone and I knew I didn't have service but I just texted my mom ..." The company declined to say if passengers were in danger or describe what went wrong.

The aircraft landed safely at 2:20 p.m. with fire and rescue crews waiting nearby.

Delta's maintenance team in Atlanta is expected to continue looking into the issue.

The video was shared by Twitter user @RAREsheis, who said she was also on the flight and heard a loud bang before being told "we lost an engine". "They kept everyone calm", said another passenger. "We apologise to our customers for the inconvenience this diversion may have caused".

According to Popular Mechanics, the MD-88 is the "oldest plane in service with any major US airline" and has earned a notorious reputation among pilots due to its antiquated controls, cramped cockpit, and extreme noisiness.

Delta are planning to retire the planes by 2020.
