A United Airlines flight #UA366 from San Diego was forced to make an emergency landing in Albuquerque after flames were seen shooting from one of the plane’s engines.

The Chicago-bound flight landed safely in New Mexico early Monday and United arranged for a different plane to get customers to their destination, the company said in a statement.

One of the passengers, Thomas Chorny, recorded a video of the incident while sitting in seat 34F with a view of the right wing.

The airline said Flight 366 “diverted to Albuquerque following a mechanical issue with one of the engines.”
