Engine catches fire on Hawaiian Airlines ‘ferry flight’ but plane lands safely at Sea-Tac (VIDEO)

SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, Wash. — A Hawaiian Airlines plane with only a crew on board landed safely at Sea-Tac International Airport Tuesday night after one of its engines caught fire, officials said.

The aircraft was a ferry flight, meaning that there was only a flight crew on board and no passengers. It was flying from Everett’s Paine Field to Sea-Tac for maintenance.

Sea-Tac spokesman Perry Cooper said there were no injuries.

He said the plane caught fire as the plane was landing, but that it went out before the fire crews arrived.

After the fire went out, the plane was towed to the terminal.

Cooper said the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
