A Singapore Airlines plane burst into flames Monday after an emergency landing at the city-state’s Changi Airport.

Images posted to social media show flames leaping from the plane’s wing.
“We were so close to death!! I am still in the plane with all passengers. But I think we are safe for now…” passenger Lee Bee Yee posted on Facebook.
From her seat, Yee could see the fire from inside the plane, and the aftermath as firefighters doused it with foam.

Flight SQ368, a Boeing 777-300ER, took off from Changi Airport around 2:25am on June 27 carrying 222 passengers and 19 crew, Singapore Airlines said.
The flight had been expected to arrive in Milan at 8:45 a.m. local time. Instead, just two hours into the flight, an engine oil warning message forced the pilot to turn back for an emergency landing.
On arrival in Singapore, the plane’s right engine burst into flames.
According to statements by Singapore Airlines and Changi Airport, the fire was extinguished within minutes and all passengers and crew were safely evacuated from the plane.
The passengers would be transferred to another flight due to depart for Milan later on Monday.
Singapore Airlines said they will be cooperating with authorities in their investigations.

A Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIA) flight to Milan caught fire early on Monday after returning to Singapore’s Changi airport following an engine oil warning message, but all passengers were safe, the airline and airport officials said.

The aircraft‘s right engine caught fire after the aircraft, a Boeing 777-300ER, touched down at Changi airport at around 6:50 am (2250 GMT). Emergency services put out the fire and there were no injuries to the 222 passengers and 19 crew on board, a SIA statement said.

“Passengers disembarked through stairs and were transported to the terminal building by bus. Passengers will be transferred to another aircraft which is expected to depart for Milan later today,” the statement said.

The SIA flight, SQ368, departed at 2:05 am, but about two hours into the flight the pilot announced there was an engine problem and the flight would return to Singapore, Channel News Asia reported.

Social media images and videos showed the 10-year-old aircraft‘s right wing on fire as it stood on the runway after landing, and fire engines racing to it.

There appeared to be damage to the right wing and GE90 engine, which was manufactured by General Electric.
