Most terrifying experience of my life. … Flight takes off, Right wing of the plane (where I’m sitting in the aisle seat) sparking & now one engine failed,” she tweeted. “They’re making announcements but I can’t hear anything because people are screaming.” The passengers were originally scheduled to leave Newark at 7 p.m., but had to wait until midnight for a new flight, the report said.
