As we were taking off the engine exploded! The plane was filled with smoke but we all got off all right. We had another night in Vegas, though!

You might have seen or heard. An engine on our plane exploded and caught fire when we were taking off from Vegas. We did a bit of a landing then evacuated (very dramatic!!). We're all fine. A bit shaken.

We are all fine but I reckon we might be getting a boat home!
