Air Asia X plane makes Emergency landing in Brisbane

Roman Quaedvlieg and Peter Dutton

Early last week, another AirAsia plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Perth Airport after an engine malfunctioned 90 minutes into the flight to Kuala Lumpur.

"The plane started shuddering then there were a couple of loud bangs and a lot of light", he said.

The man also said in the midst of the chaos, he "saw the airline hostess praying".

As the mid-air confusion unfolded, the pilot ordered passengers to turn off all electrical devices and cameras.

Passengers said the plane began shaking shortly after take-off.

The Airbus, which was carrying 345 passengers and 14 cabin crew, flew for another hour before landing safely in Brisbane.

AirAsia later said it suspects the incident was caused by a bird strike.

"How quickly they got a report out, saying that it was suggested it was a bird strike... it all doesn't pass the pub test", Mr Hansford said.

The pilot chose to make an emergency landing in Brisbane and followed correct procedure by going to the closest large airport, Mr Gibson said.

Tim Joga, 31, told the Sydney Morning Herald that he heard about "four or five bangs" coming from the right-side before noticing flames coming out of the engine on that side.

"I could see an orange light coming from the windows", one passenger told the media on Tuesday.

"The flight took off and three minutes after the engine failed already, flames really went through it all".

'We are following all regulatory guidelines to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our guests, ' he said in the statement.

"We would like to commend our pilot and crew members for their professionalism, and swift action to reassure passengers", he added.

The Malaysian airline said it was arranging a special flight to take the passengers to Kuala Lumpur.
