Plane passenger films viral video showing dramatic engine fault in mid-air

Another passenger, Avery Porch, heard "a boom" about an hour into the flight and smoke began to fill the cabin, she told WMAR-TV.

"The Captain came on the loudspeaker and said that we had lost an engine and that they were making preparations to have an emergency landing", passenger Jose Bahamonde-Gonzalez said. She praised the actions of the crew, saying they "did an wonderful job in staying and keeping us all calm, while preparing us for an emergency landing". "It [the plane] started slowing down a bit [and] the air cut off", she said.

Delta's Flight 1425 - a 32-year-old MD-88 - left Hartsfield-Jackson International Baltimore-Washington International around 12:48 Monday.

Tyler Kreuger, Porch's boyfriend, said that even though he had no service midair, he still texted his parents: "I love you".

Dramatic video footage has captured the moment a piece of a Delta aircraft engine broke off mid-flight, prompting an emergency landing. "They kept everyone calm", said another passenger.

The aircraft was able to land safely at North Carolina's Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) at approximately 2:27 p.m.

Delta released a statement apologizing for the inconvenience and passengers said they were given a $30 food voucher while they waited to leave Raleigh.

Passengers were rebooked on another flight to Atlanta later that day.

The aircraft involved in the engine failure incident yesterday was an MD-88, a plane now being phased out by airlines across the world.
