Passengers were alarmed and frightened when an AirAsia X plane headed to Kuala Lumpur suffered a reported fan blade failure in its No. 1 engine, causing the aircraft to shudder violently mid-flight on June 25, according to The West Australian. Flight D7237 left Perth Airport at 6:50 am, with nearly 400 passengers on board. Pilots were forced to divert the flight back to Perth, landing at 10 am. The plane can be seen shuddering in this video. A passenger told the ABC, “It was literally like you were sitting on top of a washing machine. The whole thing was going. We could see the engine out the window which was really shaking on the wing.” Credit: Twitter/Alia Abdul Rahim via Storyful
