BA Flight Catches Fire




KIEV -- A British Airways plane flying from Kiev to London caught fire shortly after takeoff, forcing the crew to turn the plane around and land back in Ukraine, officials said Tuesday.


The six-man crew on the Boeing 737 successfully landed the plane at Boryspil Airport on Monday evening after one of the plane's engines briefly caught fire, the Emergency Situations Ministry said.
