Flames erupted from engine forces plane back to Tokyo

Flames erupted from the engine of a passenger plane after it took off from Tokyo's international airport for China on Thursday, forcing an emergency landing, officials said.

Airport controllers spotted fire in the left engine of All Nippon Airways flight 935 shortly after its 10:17 a.m. (0117 GMT) departure from Narita international airport, and ordered the plane to turn back, according to Transport Ministry official Eiji Suzuki.

The plane, a Boeing 767-300 headed for Xiamen in China, landed safely at Narita about 30 minutes later, Suzuki said.

Narita Airport official Nobuhiro Noguchi said there were no injuries and that the incident was being investigated, the AP reports.
