This is the terrifying moment passengers saw SPARKS pouring mid-air out of a plane’s ENGINE.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner was flying from Sydney to Singapore when travellers heard a loud bang from the aircraft’s right wing.
Horrified passengers looked out of the window and saw a trail of bright orange sparks coming from the engine 30 minutes before landing.
A ten-second clip posted on Chinese social media shows the hair-raising view from the window of the budget airline just before 6pm on Saturday night.
Passengers in the clip can be heard suggesting that a bird had been sucked into the engine.
Flight data shows the flight TZ001 had been carrying 338 passengers and landed safely without any delays at 6.42pm at Changi Airport.
A spokesman for Scoot – owned by Budget Aviation Holdings Pte Ltd which also runs Tigerair – said they were investigating the incident.
They added: “There was an incident during the descent into Singapore which necessitated a shut-down of the right engine”.
“Our flight crew exercised due diligence and immediately contacted Singapore’s Air Traffic Control while requesting for fire services to be on standby on landing.
”The aircraft landed as scheduled without incident and fire services subsequently confirmed that there was no engine fire.
“Safety is of utmost importance to Scoot and we will spare no effort to ensure the well-being of our guests.”
