The airport officials said the plane was fine before the takeoff and they didn’t notice any fault in the engine.

Terrifying videos circulating on social media show flames erupting from the Atlas Air jet’s tail after it decided to land immediately.

An audio obtained by NBC Miami also revealed a terrible situation at the cockpit with the pilot saying he wants to land because he has five souls on board.

Boeing, FAA and General Electric were approached for a response by Reuters, but the agency had not yet heard anything from them.
