A plane heading to Australia "was forced to make an emergency landing at San Francisco International Airport early Tuesday after an engine exploded in flight over the Pacific," reports KTVU. (In the esteemed words of Rachel Zoe, shut the front door!) The plane, carrying 212 passengers, "had departed SFO around 11:10 p.m. and had been in the air for about 45 minutes when passengers heard a loud bang and felt the plane vibrate," prompting the emergency landing.
The explosion left a massive hole in one of the engines. Luckily, all passengers and crew members landed safely without injury.
