A passenger onboard the British Airways flight that was forced to make an emergency landing at Heathrow Airport captured this dramatic footage of the touch down.
A large section of the casing around the left-side jet engine appears to be missing, although problems with the right-side engine reportedly caused the plane to land.
A caller to LBC 97.3 named Aiden, said he was driving to Heathrow this morning and had to "hit the brakes" as he was worried debris might fall from the plane.
He told presenter Nick Ferrari:
"I thought to myself it was just the swirl of the wingtips and then I thought it was just too much for one side and I realised it was smoke.
The plane's coming right over the top of my head and I've had to brake because when I saw the right-hand starboard engine, it's just all blackened ... I didn't know if anything was going to fall off it. I've had to hit the brakes to make sure we don't coincide."
