Flight returns after engine fails
The Associated Press
BOSTON -- A Northwest Airlines flight headed for Amsterdam returned to Logan International Airport Tuesday night after one of its engines failed, authorities said.
There were no injuries, said Jeff Smith, a spokesman for the airline.
Flight 38 took off around 7 p.m. with 255 passengers and 10 crew members on board. As the DC-10 took off, people in the terminal saw flames coming from an engine on the plane's tail, said Massachusetts Port Authority spokesman Phil Orlandella.
The plane landed safely about 20 minutes after it took off, Orlandella said.
The crew noticed the engine trouble on takeoff and immediately decided to turn back, Smith said. The plane can fly and land with just one engine.
Northwest arranged another flight to take the passengers to Amsterdam.
