    Couldn't figure out another way to phrase topic title.  Per report on NBC, Singapore flight from Singapore to Milan, Italy turned around and made an emergency landing due to engine oil light.  Shortly after landing the engine burst into flames as well as the entire wing.  (The pictures are pretty dramatic.)  241 passengers had to remain on the plane while fire fighters extinguished the fire.  No loss of life!  No injuries!
     
    P.S.  Maybe someone else can find a better link.  About 75-80% of the video on the link I've provided is an ad for Beaver Creek Golf.
