A Qatar Airways plane.

A Qatar Airways plane has made an emergency landing at Istanbul Ataturk airport after one of its engines caught fire shortly after take-off.


The flight, code-named QR240, took off for Doha at 1.20pm local time (11.20am BST) and landed in Istanbul 40 minutes later.

Radar showed the plane diverting over the Marmara Sea shortly after take-off on Thursday and returning to land at Istanbul Ataturk Airport.

Footage shared by Mehmet Kirazoglu on Twitter, showed flames bursting out of the aircraft’s left engine as it came in to land.

Giving account of the event, Kirazoglu said: “I was in Turkish Airlines Technology building nearby the IST airport we heard a strange engine sound over us.

“When heads up we saw a Qatar Airways plane whose left engine was flaming out. It turned round towards sea.

“I suppose it drained it’s fuel to Marmara Sea. Thank god, we have learnt that it landed safely.
“At one point it was top over us and saw the burning engine clearly. It did not close landing gears and continued to climb”. He added.



Furthermore, as at the time of filing this report, there was no casualties recorded after the emergency landing of the Qatar airways plane at Istanbul Ataturk airport.
