The British Airways plane in last week's dramatic emergency at Heathrow landed after pilots shut down one engine and the other engine was on fire, according to an official American accident investigation team.
Engine cowls, or coverings, on both the US-made engines of the Oslo-bound Airbus A319 came off and fell on the runway as the plane took off for Oslo last Friday morning, said the US National Transport Safety Board (NTSB).
The pilots reported that they shut down one engine, there was a fuel leak, and that they were returning, the NTSB said on its website .
