A Singapore Airlines plane caught fire during an emergency landing at Changi Airport today (Jun 27). Ferrying 222 passengers and 19 crew, flight SQ368 departed Changi Airport Terminal 3 for Milan, Italy, at around 2.05am today. About 3 hours into the flight, the pilot received an engine oil warning message and passengers were told of a oil leakage and that the plane does not have enough fuel for the journey. The pilot then made the decision to return to Singapore and the plane made an emergency landing in Changi Airport at around 6.45am.
As soon as the plane touched down, the right wing of the plane caught fire. According to a witness, the fire brigade arrived at the scene around 3 minutes later and put out the blaze in 10 minutes. The passengers alighted from the plane only after the fire was put out. There is no casualty reported.
A new flight has been arranged at 9.30am on the same day while the Singapore national airline carrier is investigating the cause of the incident. You may view the video here:
