Watch: Singapore Airlines flight catches fire during emergency landing
The aircraft’s right engine caught fire after the aircraft, a Boeing 777-300ER, touched down about 6:50 am (8:50 am AEST).
According to Channel News Asia, two hours had passed and shocked passengers heard the pilot make an announcement that the plane was to return to Singapore, because of a problem detected in the engine. The plane’s control had presumably been flashing an engine oil warning message.
