Qatar Airways Aircraft Forced To Make Emergency Landing After Engine Catches Fire. Photos

 A Qatar Airways aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing at Istanbul's Ataturk airport today (Thursday) after one of its engines caught fire shortly after take-off, broadcaster CNN Turk reported.

The Airbus A330 had been headed for Doha but had to turn back to Ataturk airport less than 30 minutes into its journey, after its landing gear failed to retract on take-off, an airport official said.

The official could not confirm a report by broadcaster CNN Turk that one of the plane's engines caught fire.

It was not immediately clear how many passengers and crew were on board the flight but there were no reports of any casualties.
