United Airlines Express flight #4882 from Raleigh-Durham was en route to Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey according to officials.
Philadelphia International Airport says a United Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing at PHL Airport due to an engine fire.
“Midway through the flight we heard a loud sound,” Cunningham said. “I was on the left side of the plane and looked off to the right side. The propeller stopped. People in the back of the plane reported smoke and fire. That’s what happened. They said we were gonna take an emergency landing in Philly.”
