If It’s Boeing, I’m Not Going

Boeing jet engine seen spewing fire on Air Canada flight: ‘Heart in mouth moment’

FoxBusiness–Air Canada recently addressed concerns about the flight, AC 872, which departed from Toronto en route to Paris on June 5. Officials said that the Boeing 777 aircraft carried 389 passengers and 13 crew members.

The video, which was shot by an onlooker on the runway, showed the aircraft ascending hundreds of feet in the air while flames began sparking near its engine. The plane landed soon after.

“Heart in mouth moment. Wouldn’t blame the passengers for not wanting to fly after that plane returned safely…” one X user wrote in response to the footage.

“This makes [me] not want to fly,” another said.

In a statement published on Friday, Air Canada explained that the fire was caused by an “engine issue that was determined to be a compressor stall.”
