SEE IT: Engine destroyed on Air France flight from Paris to LA

In a statement, Air France simply confirmed "serious damage" to one engine and said its crew had "handled this serious incident perfectly".

The aircraft (F-HPJE), which was operating today's flight AF066 from Paris Charles de Gaulle, is understood to have been cruising at FL370 when major components of its No. 4 Engine Alliance GP7200 seperated.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is investigating after a California-bound airliner operated by Air France was forced to land in Labrador due to engine troubles.

One of the four engines on the Airbus A380 flight AF66 failed west of Greenland on Saturday.

Visuals posted on social media by passengers and their friends showed extensive damage to the front of the outer starboard engine. Only regional airlines offer scheduled service so it doesn't have facilities to do major repairs on an A380.

Representatives from the school district will receive the award during events scheduled in Washington, D.C., on November 6-7. The school, which educates 700 students in grades K-8, takes in a range of students, from Society Hill to Chinatown.

Their version of the craft uses GP7200 engines, a giant turbofan built by General Electric and Pratt and Whitney of the US. There was no serious damage on the wing and plane landed safely.

The airline has sent two aircraft to take the 497 passengers who were on the enormous jetliner onward to Los Angeles. Passengers reported that they heard a loud bang and then strong vibration for next 5-10 minutes.

Goose Bay, a small town in eastern Canada, isn't accustomed to handling enormous jetliners like the A380.

Air France has not commented on the cause of engine failure.

However, no one got injured due to the emergency landing.
