US passenger jet makes emergency landing after engine problem

Passengers on board a Delta Air Lines flight in the US have recalled the frightening moments when an engine malfunction forced their plane to make an emergency landing. Video shot by a passenger showed what appeared to be a nose cone loose inside one of the engines. "The flight crew of Delta flight 1425 from Atlanta to Baltimore elected to divert to Raleigh, NC, out of an abundance of caution after receiving an indication of a possible issue with one of the aircraft's engines," a spokesperson told US media. Passenger Logan Webb posted video on social media showing a metal part moving around inside the engine with an orange glow behind it. The captain announced the plane had lost an engine and preparations were being made for an emergency landing, passenger Jose Bahamonde-Gonzalez told WMAR-TV. Video shot inside the cabin recorded flight attendants telling passengers to brace for the landing at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
