A passenger on board the Southwest Airlines flight that was forced to make an emergency landing has spoken to Triple M this morning.
Joe Marcus told Howie and Lehmo that passengers heard an explosion before oxygen masks fell from the roof.
"All of a sudden I heard a big boom... and the engine was just all black and it looked like it explained," Marcus recounted.
"Everyone was crying and screaming - it was kind of crazy."
