A plane that was headed to Los Angeles International Airport from France made an emergency landing in Newfoundland after experiencing engine damage, officials said Saturday.

No-one was hurt as the pilots landed in Goose Bay, in Canada's easternmost province just after 3.30pm on Saturday, local time. The flight bound for Los Angeles departed from Paris at 11.42 am.

The incident is the most severe since Qantas in 2010 grounded all six of its A380 aircraft after an inflight explosion on one of the plane's engines.

Visuals posted on social media by passengers and their friends showed extensive damage to the front of the outer starboard engine.

Air France said an investigation is underway "to shed light on this serious incident", involving representatives from Air France, Airbus and the French Aviation Accident Investigation Bureau. The A380 is capable of flying with two of the four engines out of service.

The plane's engines were manufactured by Engine Alliance, a joint venture between General Electric Co. It would have been a large airplane incident if the pilots failed to take quick action and land the aircraft safely.

Fire crews met the plane on the tarmac, though CBC reports they weren't needed.

However, no one got injured due to the emergency landing.

Passengers tweeted photos showing severe damage to the engine.

The cause of the problem was not immediately clear, but David Rehmar, a former aircraft mechanic who was on the flight, told the BBC that he thought a fan failure may have been to blame.
