Passengers raise alarm over engine crack

A China Airlines flight from Shanghai to Taiwan aborted take-off after passengers noticed crack on an engine casing, the Taiwan-based airline said yesterday.

Passengers on the flight from Pudong International Airport to Taoyuan County over the weekend had to wait eight hours until a replacement aircraft was found.

Some passengers looking from their windows shortly before take-off saw a crack in the casing of an engine and informed the captain.

The captain immediately decided to abort take-off.

Passengers later queried why ground crew had failed to spot the crack during inspections before take-off.
