Plane catches engine fire in midair

An airplane that took off in Singapore and bound for Indonesia made an emergency landing on Monday at 1:20.
Cathay Pacific's Airbus A330-330 carrying 136 passengers caught fire while airborne due to engine problems.
Two loud bangs from flight CX715 were heard and the lights went off. Passengers smelled something was burning and began seeing flames, in a report by The Telegraph.
The Hong-Kong based aircraft returned to Singapore's Changi International Airport at 1:57. All passengers were unharmed and safely evacuated.
Watch the attached YouTube video where Captain Bradley Chic praised the passengers after things have settled down, "The best that we can ever ask of passengers is to just stay cool, stay calm, listen to the direction of their cabin crew, which you all did, and for that we thank you."
