Canada plane forced to make emergency landing after after hitting several geese

On the morning of September 10, Swoop flight 312 departed Abbotsford International Airport in British Columbia for Edmonton when the aircraft collided with several geese just a few minutes after lifting off the tarmac, CBC News Canada reported.

The Swoop aircraft's pilot announced an emergency landing would have to be made and the plane returned to Abbotsford Airport. I looked around for a flight attendant and couldn't find one so I just started yelling, 'There's fire, fire, fire right engine, fire right engine!'

They added that the plane would not be able to return to service due to the damage, with passengers being put on a recovery plane the next day instead.

"It was very overwhelming, you don't expect it", the man said.

Flames licking around the wings of your plane is literally the last thing anyone wants to see on a flight, but that terrifying scene is exactly what passengers on an internal Canadian trip witnessed on Tuesday.

'I'm surprisingly calm but yet curios [sic].

Another passenger, Donna-Lee Rayner, wrote on Facebook about how she started writing "my goodbye messages in case my phone is recovered after we crash".

"The intercom comes on".

Speaking of the ordeal, Ms Rayner said after boarding and taking off, they heard a loud "thud thud thud thud" before smoke entered the cabin and a smell of "burning" filled the air. I started texting my mom saying "Something's wrong with the airplane".

"Safely back in Abbotsford and waiting for further instruction".

The plane engine then caught fire, with a video capturing the flames shooting from the side of the plane.

"I've been on a plane before where the tire blew out when it was on take-off".

"I'm glad everyone is safe, it was awful to watch and I just wanted the jet to make it back to the airport".

"All travellers were offloaded safely and without incident".

In a tweet, it thanked the captain and crew for ensuring the safety of everyone on the flight.
