Passengers evacuated a plane after it made an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport Tuesday afternoon.
A fire broke out in one of the No. 2 engine of the turbo-prop United Express plane, said airport officials.
The flight originated in Raleigh-Durham International Airport and was headed to Newark Liberty Airport when it experienced some sort of issue, said a PHL airport spokesman.
SkyForce10 captured passengers getting off the de Havilland Dash 8-400 (DHC 8-400) shortly after 4 p.m. and standing on the grass next to the apron. AnnMarie Kreitzer, a passenger on another plane, captured the smoky plane on the tarmac in Philadelphia.
