NEW Air France Flight Makes Emergency Landing in Goose Bay

"There wasn't the panic that I would've expected", she said, praising the pilots for the way they handled the incident.

However, no one got injured due to the emergency landing.

The passengers are now being assisted by teams dispatched to the airport.

The pilot came on over the loudspeaker and said the plane had “lost” one of its engines and would be attempting to land in Canada, said Adams.

Daniel McNeely, who said he is one of the passengers, tweeted that mayday was declared while the air craft was flying over the North Atlantic Ocean.

One of the plane's four engine had "serious damage", but no further details about the damages were released.

Goose Bay is a base operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force but is also a designated standby airport for diverted transatlantic flights. Only regional airlines offer scheduled service so it doesn't have facilities to do major repairs on an A380.

The outer right No. 4 Engine Alliance GP72000 engine suffered the uncontained failure, which resulted in losing the engine nose cowl and the Pratt & Whitney made Engine fan, exposing the Safran built Low Pressure Compressor.

Several hours after the plane landed, passengers said they remained onboard. The double-decker aircraft carrying 496 passengers and 24 crew had taken off from Paris yesterday bound for Los Angeles and was several hours into the flight when the blow-out occurred.

Passenger Rick Engebretsen from California shared the images of damaged engine on Twitter.

No explanation on the cause of the damage on the engine could not be given in a first time.
