    A Southwest Airlines flight from New York to Dallas has been forced to perform an emergency landing in Philadelphia after one of its engines appeared to blow-out.

    Flight 1380 took off from LaGuardia Airport at 10.27am local time, bound for Dallas. Less than an hour later, the pilot of the Southwest aircraft was forced to take emergency action due to engine damage.

    According to Flight Aware, which tracks the flight paths of commercial airlines, the passenger plane set down at Philadelphia International Airport at 11.23am. The aircraft landed safely and passengers are now being transported to the terminal, a statement from the airport read.

    Images taken by passengers on board the stricken Boeing 737 plane show significant damage to the left engine.

    “What a flight! Made it! Still here,” wrote one passenger.

    Another clearly relieved passenger added: “I want to thank the crew of SWA 1380 for a great job getting us to the ground safely after losing an engine.”

    Southwest Airlines say an investigation into the incident is now underway.
