A British Airways plane flying to Lyon, France, made an emergency landing at Heathrow when it had spitting out flames from of one of its engines.
A witness told that he had seen flames spitting out of an engine and that the plane was making spluttering noises as it was taking off.
Tom Puttick, who works near Heathrow said, “I was in the petrol station opposite the airport which is when I heard the bang, so I turned around and the airplane had flames spitting out of the engine with a spluttering noise as it was taking off”.
Later Investigators found that doors of the engines had been left unlatched during maintenance.
The aircraft is being thoroughly checked over by engineers and the plane has been forced to turn around after experiencing engine problems having taken-off from Heathrow this morning.
