A Hong Kong passenger plane landed safely in Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport after one of its engines failed in mid-air.
No one was hurt and all 257 passengers and 13 crew members disembarked without further drama, Metro Daily reports.
Hong Kong Airlines flight HX252 suffered engine failure as the twin-engine Airbus A330-223 aircraft was coming in to land.
A video shot from the ground by a witness shows the plane making its final descent after the 90-minute flight from Hong Kong.
The captain is heard telling an air traffic controller that the No. 1 engine had failed.
The controller instructs the captain to focus on the other engine and guides the plane to a safe landing at 10:49 a.m.
Emergency personnel are seen rushing toward the stricken plane.
Hong Kong civil aviation authorities said they have received a report of the incident and an investigation is under way.
