Second Qantas flight makes emergency landing in Singapore

SINGAPORE — A Qantas Boeing 747 with 431 people on board landed safely in Singapore late Friday after an engine caught fire minutes after it took off from the city-state, the airline said.
The problem arose just a day after a Qantas Airbus A380 superjumbo jet made an emergency landing at the same airport due to an engine blowout.
"There was a loud bang and a jet of fire from the back of the engine," Andrew Jenkins, a 43-year-old Australian banker, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
