BREAKING: Air France Flight Makes EMERGENCY LANDING… Here’s What We Know


An Air France flight headed for Los Angeles was forced to make an emergency landing in Newfoundland, Canada after one of the airplane’s engines actually blew out while flying over the Atlantic Ocean.

Can you imagine how scary that would be? Good Lord!

Air France released the following statements:

“Air France confirms that the crew of flight AF 066 operated by A380 from Paris-CDG to Los Angeles decided to divert to Goose Bay airport (Canada) following serious damage to one of its four engines.

The aircraft landed safely at 15:42 (GMT), and the regularly trained pilots and cabin crew handled this serious incident perfectly. The passengers are currently being assisted by teams dispatched to the location.”

“Air France has immediately decided to make arrangements for two flights from Goose Bay (Canada) to Los Angeles in an effort to get the 497 passengers of Flight AF066 to their destination as quickly as possible.”

“For now, the two flights are scheduled to leave Goose Bay at 04h15 (local time). One flight will be aboard an Air France B777-300, and the other aboard a B737, an aircraft specially chartered by Air France. ”

“Flight AF066 landed safely at the Goose Bay (Canada) airport ‪at 15h42(UT). The regularly trained pilots and cabin crew handled the incident perfectly.”

The passengers are now in the care of airline staff.”

Passengers on the Airbus A380 tweeted pictures of the damaged engine, with one man saying he felt a “loud thud and a lot of vibration.”

Another passenger tweeted: “I’m on board. One of our engines is slightly blown apart. Will try and take a photo and tweet it. Just glad to be on the ground. I think the engine has seen better days.”

CBC News, citing air traffic control transmissions, reported that the plane landed in Goose Bay at around 1:40 p.m. local time and scattered debris across the runway. The runway was briefly closed while the debris was cleared.

In a statement, Air France praised the pilots and cabin crew on Flight 66 out of Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Aiport, who they said “handled this serious incident perfectly.” The statement added that the engine had suffered “serious damage,” but declined to elaborate.

Air France said it was working to re-route the passengers on to Los Angeles.

WOW! We are glad that everyone made it back to earth safely!

Our good Lord protected these people and for that we are eternally grateful.
