“On September 18, the flight crew aboard flight 1416 reported an issue with the number two engine and returned to Long Beach Airport,” Jet Blue officials said in a statement.
The pilots had received a warning signal that the engine was overheating, according to Jake Heflin of the Long Beach Fire Department.
This video shows the emergency descent of Jetblue flight 1416, which happened on September 18. Seeing those oxygen masks going down as the cabin fills up with smoke—after one of the engines stops!—is the beginning of one of my worst nightmares. Yet, all passengers seem completely calm about it.
Even the guy holding the camera is smiling and waving as his plane is going down.
