DUBAI – Did a plane really catch fire while in Sharjah? Authorities have issued a statement dismissing it as a rumour.
The Sharjah Civil Aviation Department (SCAD) clarified that a Turkey-bound cargo plane experienced a “small malfunction” before takeoff that caused smoke to emanate from one of the engines.
According to the aviation authority, the malfunction was immediately fixed and the plane was able to depart from Sharjah and land in Istanbul without any incident. ICA/Expat Media
