Video shared on social media showed passengers sitting in a pitch-black cabin as lights and flames flashed outside the windows.

The pilot of an Atlas Air Boeing 767, with 212 people aboard, declared an emergency and returned to Honolulu, landing without incident, according to Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer.

The passenger flight landed safely at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport following a mechanical issue with one engine, said Debbie Coffey, vice president and chief communications officer for Atlas Air.

“At Atlas, safety is always our top priority and we will be conducting a thorough inspection to determine the cause,” Coffey said.
