British Airways passenger aircraft engine catches fire midair

In a bizarre incident of ground crew sheer negligence, a British Airways passenger aircraft narrowly escaped a disaster as 'covers' of both the engines blew off and one of them caught fire.

The flight was forced to make an emergency landing at Heathrow with one engine damaged and the other on fire. The emergency landing caused the plane to scatter chunks of metal, some weighing up to 37kg, across the runway.

It was later found out that the ehausted engineers worked on the wrong aircraft and thus failed to remove the covers of the engines before the aircraft took off. One of the BA technicians had worked 70 hours over seven consecutive days and nights and was on the second of two 12-hour overtime night shifts.

The incident occurred on Flight A319 from London to Oslo in May 2013, published in Daily Mail on 14 July 2015
