This is absolutely chilling! Passengers aboard an American Airlines flight literally escaped death by the skin of their teeth. The plane’s engine exploded right before taking off, but can you imagine if it caught fire mid-air?! Watch the petrifying clip right here.
This is not a good month for planes. First we heard about Taylor Hicks‘ horrifying flying experience, then Mike Pence‘s private jet skidded off the runway, and now THIS. Analysts say flying is the safest way to travel, but after seeing this American Airlines video, we’re not too sure about that. A passenger aboard an American Airlines flight at Chicago O’Hare Airport recorded the moment Flight 383’s engine exploded and caused a total panic. Reports say there were 8 injuries, 2 of which were serious.
Passengers were rightfully freaking out, but they should be thanking their lucky stars that they were still on the ground when the engine burst into flames. If the engine exploded mid-air….we can’t even say it…it’s too awful to think about. A similar thing happened to American Idol winner, Taylor, just a few days ago. He fell asleep on his private jet and woke up to the scariest “muttering” sound. His jet was COVERED in oil, but thankfully made a safe landing.
Donald Trump‘s running mate, Mike, experienced a similar nightmare on Oct. 27 when the politician’s plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia airport in NYC. “The plane fishtailed a little bit – just for a few seconds, you could feel us bouncing off,” he explained to Good Morning America. “With mud splattered on the windows, we figured we were off the runway, but thank god, everyone was fine.” Mike and the flight crew made it out of the situation unharmed, but we imagine that they’re still shaken up about it. These plane accidents better sort themselves out before everyone starts traveling for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
