Air France plane engine disintegrates mid-air,forcing plane to make emergency landing .

Passengers were left horrified after the engine of an Air France plane from Paris to the USA disintegrated in the sky, forcing the aircraft into an emergency landing.

Footage shows part of the plane's engine flapping in the air as it flew over the Atlantic Ocean with 520 passengers on board.

Travellers described how everything seemed normal until they heard a "loud thud and a lot of vibration" before the pilot declared a mayday this afternoon.

Ground crews were left to "pick up pieces of the plane from the runway", one passenger added.

Flight records show the Airbus A380 aircraft, travelling under flight number AF66, was diverted to Canada's Goose Bay airport on its journey from Paris to Los Angeles.
 Air France confirmed there was "serious damage" to one of the plane's four engines before it landed safely.
