Passengers on a TAP flight from Italy to Portugal suffered a fright earlier this week when one of the aircraft’s engines caught fire shortly after take-off, forcing the jet to U-turn and perform an emergency landing.

National tabloid Correio da Manhã reported the incident happened on Tuesday, when a fire in the engine of the TAP airbus A321 forced the aircraft to return to the Leonardo da Vinci airport in Fiumicino, Rome, and make an emergency landing.
Quoting the Italian press, CM reports the aircraft had taken off just fifteen minutes earlier, and was carrying 171 passengers and seven crew at the time.
It landed safely and no one was injured.
