Japan Airlines plane with 50 passengers on board makes emergency landing in Aomori after fire signal

TOKYO (Bloomberg): A Japan Airlines Co. plane made an emergency landing at Aomori airport Saturday after a system message signaled one of its engines had caught fire mid-air, the company said.

About 50 people were aboard JL2154 bound for Osaka when it was forced to return to Aomori because of message in the cockpit that suggested the left engine had caught fire, the carrier said.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

A JAL spokesperson said the company was investigating details of the engine trouble.

"We are confirming if there was an emergency situation and whether the engine actually caught fire,” JAL said in a text message.
