Plane Bursts Into Flames At JFK Airport As It Prepares For Take-Off (Pics)

A plane reportedly burst into flames on the runway at JFK Airport as it prepared for take-off.

Fire crews rushed to the busy New York airport after the pilot of the Argentina Airlines flight reported the engine fire on Thursday night, officials told AFP.
The engine of the plane, which was bound for Buenos Aires, reportedly overheated and caught fire while stationary at the runway at around 11pm local time.

No one was injured in the incident.

Footage which appears to have been taken at the scene shows the plane bursting into flames with a loud bang.
Alice Zhang tweeted pictures of the blaze, saying:

   ''Yeah so I’m on the runway about to take off and another plane just landed next to us and IT WAS ON F*****G FIRE LIKE LITERAL FIRE.
   ''That’s just what I wanna see before takeoff well it’s been nice knowing you all.''

Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, told WSBTV news that when rescue trucks arrived they found no evidence of a fire.
