Another said they heard a "loud thud and a lot of vibration" before looking out of the window at the horrific scene. And he added that the pilots had quickly shut down the affected engine.

The Air France flight diverted to Goose Bay airport, where there is also a Canadian Forces Base, according to the airline.

The Goose Bay airport is a local airport and is not built for larger planes, and certainly, not for the largest passenger airplane in the world.

The Air France jet was reportedly travelling from Paris to Los Angeles when the engine failed. But the cause of any such failure is not yet clear.

Footage shows part of the plane's engine flapping in the air with 520 passengers on board. "The passengers are now being assisted by teams dispatched to the location".
