A landing 747 cargo plane burst into flames at East Midlands Airport in the UK after arriving from Leipzig, Germany on September 30. 

The aircraft was seen bursting into fire with a "bang" on the runway as orange flames appeared from the plane.  As the plane came to a halt, a huge amount of smoke was seen from the back of its engine.

Despite the dangerous landing, no one is believed to have been injured in the incident.

Though the cause of the incident is not known, a witness said that the engine "ingested something" as it came in contact with the ground, according to The Sun.

A photo of the plane in dramatic flames is doing rounds online.

Last week, another plane crash took place on the Teesside airport runway. Three people were rushed to the hospital after the incident. While one is believed to be in critical condition and two others are said to be in a stable condition.

Emergency services were able to remove them from the aircraft.

An investigation has been launched to discover the actual reason behind the crash.

The airport had to be shut down over the weekend but it is now up and running.

In another incident, a Phillippines airline plane was just an hour into its journey when fire and smoke began billowing from one of its engines in 2019. Fortunately, the pilots managed to quickly turn the plane around and make an emergency landing at the Los Angeles International Airport. The plane landed safely on time and no one was injured as a result of the malfunction.
