#AirFrance says flight AF066 suffered serious engine damage

BERLIN (AFP) – An Air France A380 superjumbo passenger jet travelling from Paris to Los Angeles was forced to make an emergency landing in eastern Canada on Saturday (Sept 30) following “serious damage” to one of its four engines, the airline said. “Flight 066 landed without further damage at the Goose Bay military airport in Canada and all of the 520 people on board were evacuated with no injuries,” an Air France spokesman in Paris told AFP. The double-decker, wide body aircraft was re-routed as it passed over Greenland, landing in Goose Bay at 1542 GMT (11.42pm Singapore time), the spokesman said.
