explodes engine plane lanzarote

Plane engine explodes - Lanzarote

The engine of an airplane explodes when taking off from Lanzarote.

According to the digital, a plane of the German airline Condor, which took off around 5:25 p.m. from Lanzarote airport, has had to return to the island airfield after one of its engines exploded. According to several witnesses, the explosion occurred shortly after takeoff, at an altitude of about 400 meters. The airplane stabilized at 900 meters (3000 feet), when it began to descend.


Immediately the emergency protocol was launched, turning off the engine, activating the firefighting and turning around the origin, ending up making a priority landing.


Isidro Pérez, mayor of San Bartolomé, confirms to LANCELOT DIGITAL that he heard the explosion, given the force of the explosion: "It was an important rumble that was heard throughout Playa Honda," he says. Pérez has also pointed out that the airport was closed to give priority to the plane, but that a few minutes after landing it operates normally.


"Fortunately, everything has been left in a good scare," indicate witnesses of the accident with whom this media has been contacted and who add that "we have seen the fire and we have feared the worst."


The second scare on a trip Lanzarote - Hamburg in 2022


This is the second mishap of these characteristics that has occurred so far in 2022, curiously on another flight Lanzarote - Hamburg, also of the airline Condor.

On that occasion it was the right wing engine that exploded. Subsequently, the flight landed in an emergency at Fuerteventura airport.
