EMERGENCY Air India from Newark forced to return due to a serious engine problem

A Mumbai-bound Air India flight from Newark Liberty International Airport with over 250 persons on board was forced to return and make an emergency landing on Saturday due to a serious engine problem, sources said.

The pilot, however, made a safe landing, they said.

“The flight had taken off for Mumbai at around 1650 hours (U.S. time) and landed back at Newark after being airborne for about two hours due to violent vibrations in one of the engines of the Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft,” Air India sources said.
