A passenger has filmed the moment that an engine suffered massive failure on a U.S. flight.

The plane took off at 12.48pm on Monday. "Smoke just started rolling into the cabin, everything started vibrating on the ceiling", passenger Tyler Krueger told CNN.

Passenger John Leonard also reported hearing a loud boom from the back of the plane. "It started slowing down a little bit, it started getting hot [and] air cut off".

"I just pulled out my phone and I knew I didn't have service but I just texted my mom ..."

Delta confirmed the incident in a statement to Storyful, writing: "The flight crew of Delta flight 1425 from Atlanta to Baltimore elected to divert to Raleigh, North Carolina, after receiving an indication of an issue with one of the aircraft's engines".

Passengers said they were more than an hour into the flight from Atlanta to Baltimore when the captain announced they were planning an emergency landing. It was extremely terrifying to be honest.

"After, the cabin filled with smoke and seat belt signs went on and off, and you could smell something was burning. They did say that the plane will now be retired". The passengers eventually landed at around 8:30 p.m. local time.

The plane in question, an MD-88, is the "oldest plane in service with any major United States airline", according to Popular Mechanics, and had been reportedly due to retire in 2020.

"The crew did an incredible job in staying and keeping us all calm, while preparing us for an emergency landing", tweeted a fellow passenger who shared a video of a flight attendant keeping people on board informed and calm.

The aircraft involved in the engine failure incident yesterday was an MD-88, a plane now being phased out by airlines across the world.
