An Air France plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Goose Bay, N.L., after the cowling blew off one of its engines mid-flight.

The plane was about an hour off the coast of Canada when the incident occurred, Miguel Amador, a passenger on the flight, said.

He also posted a video of the incident on his Twitter account.

The airline said in a statement that no one was injured in the incident. The flight landed at Goose Bay Airport at 11:42 a.m ET.

The aircraft involved in the incident was an Airbus 380 that was about seven years old, according to, an aircraft database. The engine was made by Engine Alliance, a joint venture between General Electric Co and United Technologies Corp’s Pratt & Whitney unit.

The forced landing is reminiscent of an incident seven years ago in which one of the Rolls Royce engines on a Qantas A380 suffered mid-engine damage after taking off in Singapore. The November 2010 incident prompted the grounding of the entire Qantas A380 fleet — six A380s at the time — for over three weeks.

WATCH: Photos and a video were uploaded on Twitter of a blown engine on Air France Flight AF66 which made an emergency landing in Newfoundland. 

Airbus was not immediately available for comment. Engine Alliance said in a statement that it was looking into “reports of an issue” involving one of its engines.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada told the Canadian Press it is sending investigators to look into the incident.

Flight AF66 was originally scheduled to travel from Paris to Los Angeles.

Air France said they were looking for “rerouting solutions” for passengers affected by the incident.

Aircraft on trans-Atlantic flights commonly use Goose Bay Airport in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador for emergency fueling stops.
