Passengers on the flight and others watching the landing observed that the plane definitely looked "broken".

PASSENGERS have told of their terror after a plane's engine seemingly fell to pieces mid-air.

"Just glad to be on the ground", he added.

An Air France flight from Paris to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in eastern Canada on Saturday after one of its four engines sustained "serious damage" over the Atlantic, the airline said.

Shortly after the incident occurred, passengers on board the flight posted images of the damaged engine on social media.

"We had a mid-air mayday when we lost one of our engines".
