Being dragged off a plane may not be the biggest fear for travellers nowadays…

As passengers waited patiently to board their American Airlines flight from Hong Kong to LA, a few, then all, suddenly noticed the plane  – parked close to the terminal – had caught fire.

As The Mirror reports, footage from inside the airport shows families, including a young child, looking at the huge flames through the glass.

Many people recorded the extraordinary scene on their mobile phones.

One man was injured as he tried to escape the flames, and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The fire was put out by firefighters as passengers watched the drama from the safety of the terminal building.

A spokesman for American Airlines said: "An external piece of loading equipment had a mechanical issue and caught fire while preparing to put cargo in the hold of American Airlines flight 192 from Hong Kong (HKG) to Los Angeles (LAX).

"As a result, a pallet on the loading equipment containing non-hazardous goods also caught fire.

"No passengers or crew were onboard or injured.

"The operator of loading equipment is being looked after by medical professionals with non-life threatening injuries.

"Flight AA192 has been cancelled and customers have been rebooked on other flights."

So that's reassuring then…
