Engine fire forces plane to make emergency landing in Los Angeles

Video: Plane engine spews fire, smoke before emergency landing at LAX

Philippine Airlines jet returns to LAX after flames seen spurting from one engine

Flames sparked intermittently from an engine on a Philippines-bound passenger jet as it took off from Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday morning, causing a few tense minutes for passengers until it landed safely back at the airport.

"I'm sure you saw, but the engine on that traffic ahead and to your left had some flames coming out of it, so we are getting you out of the way of it", the controller said, according to LiveATC.net, an independent website that records and plays communications between pilots and towers at many airports.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane returned and landed without incident.

In a statement, Philippine Airlines said the flaming engine was caused by a "technical issue" in one of the engines.
