A Cathay Pacific aeroplane was forced to make an emergency landing after one of its engines caught fire.
Passengers have spoken about how they prayed together as the aircraft made its way back to Singapore early this morning.
Changi Airport said flight CX715 took off from Singapore heading to Jakarta, Indonesia, at 1.12am, but quickly turned around after engine trouble and landed at 1.57am.
The Airbus 330, bound for Jakarta, had 136 passengers on board and managed to land 'without incident'.
Lucky escape: Firefighters put out a fire that started in the starboard engine of the Cathay Pacific Airbus when it landed at Singapore
Horror: Passengers react on board the flight - which had been bound for Jakarta - before they disembark
Safe: Firefighters help people as they walk down the stairs off the Cathay Pacific Airbus A330
THE A330'S SAFETY RECORD
1994: Seven killed during flight test while the crew simulated an engine failure.
2001: Air Transat flight landed in Portugal after problems with the fuel system. No deaths.
2009: 228 people killed when an A330 vanished over the Atlantic Ocean in mysterious conditions.
2010: A 12-year-old Dutch passenger was the only survivor out of 104 when a plane crashed near Tripoli.
The pilot, who praised the passengers for being calm, shut down the engine after receiving a 'stall warning'.
Reuters photographer Beawiharta was aboard the plane with his wife, two sons and daughter.
He said that about 20 minutes after take-off there were two sharp bangs.
As the plane began shaking violently, cabin crew went to retrieve meals they had only just begun serving and the lights went out.
He said there was a smell of smoke but when his son, Pradipta, 15, looked out of the window he couldn't see anything out of the ordinary.

'But I asked him to cup his hands to get a better view,' Beawiharta said. 'He shouted: 'I see fire! I see fire!'
'Panicked, he then asked: "Will we die? Will we die?" I took his hand and told him firmly: 'No, we are going to live.'

'Behind us, passengers were praying: 'God, save our flight! Give us your protection!''
The prayers got louder and louder, pierced by only the occasional cry of panic.
'A stewardess told us an engine had caught fire and we were on our way back to Singapore. Glued to the window, my son said he could see lights, the sea and ships and then lights on the ground.
In control: Captain Bradley Chic apologises to passengers after they were evacuated in the emergency landing
Thanks: Some people prayed together after touching down safely
'We all grabbed life jackets from beneath our seats, but the plane landed smoothly.
'Within five minutes, as firefighters doused the damaged engine, we walked off the plane into the terminal.'
In the waiting room, the pilot greeted assembled passengers.
'The best that we can ever ask of passengers is to stay cool, stay calm ... which you did,' he said. 'And for that we thank you.'

- 17/05/2011, 07:49 #2A Cathay Pacific Airbus A330-300, registration B-HLM performing flight CX-715 from Singapore (Singapore) to Jakarta (Indonesia) with 136 passengers, was climbing out of Singapore when the crew reported trouble with the right hand engine (Trent 772) and returned to Singapore for a safe landing about 45 minutes after departure. Emergency services put a fire out in the right hand engine, the passengers disembarked normally via stairs.
The runway was closed for about an hour.
The airport reported: "A Cathay Pacific flight, CX715, bound for Jakarta, departed Singapore Changi Airport at 0112 hours today (1712 GMT Sunday). Due to an engine-related issue, the aircraft turned back to Changi Airport and landed safely at 0157 hours. Upon the landing of the aircraft, Changi Airport's airport emergency service responded immediately with six fire vehicles and extinguished a fire in one of the engines."
The airline said the crew received a #2 engine stall indication and shut the engine down. The airplane landed back without incident. The passengers were taken to hotels and rebooked onto other flights. The airline later updated their statement to say, that the airplane stopped on the taxiway after landing and sparks were seen from the engine which were doused by fire fighters.
