The extent of the damage or what caused it is unclear, but images shared by passengers on social media show that one of the engines appear to have crumbled.
An Air France flight from Paris to Los Angeles was forced to make a sudden diversion when it lost part of an engine over the Atlantic.
CBC News, citing air traffic control transmissions, reported that the plane landed in Goose Bay at around 1:40 p.m. local time and scattered debris across the runway.
The crew handed out meals as they waited on the runway for hours, but even with full bellies, she said some passengers were growing restless. "The passengers are currently being assisted by teams dispatched to the location", says Air France, which is now working to re-route passengers to Los Angeles.
