The latest blunder for Boeing comes as the company faces questions over several concerning incidents in recent months thanks to malfunctions on its planes.

The Garuda Indonesia flight - also carrying 18 crew members - was bound for Medina in Saudi Arabia but had to land back at Makassar, Indonesia.

Many of those on board the Boeing 747-400 aircraft were due to take part in the Hajj annual pilgrimage in Mecca.

The aircraft immediately returned to the airport after “fire was observed in one of the engines”, a Garuda Indonesia spokesman saidIt returned to the Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport at around 5.15pm on 15 May.

No one on board was injured.

Garuda Indonesia president, Irfan Setiaputra said: “The captain discovered that one of the engines was on fire and immediately decided that further inspection was necessary to determine whether the engine was faulty.

“The decision was made immediately after the aircraft took off.”The airline said they provided accommodation for the affected passengers.

Travellers had to take alternative flights to Saudi Arabia later the same day.

It is understood the plane has been kept grounded at the airport while safety inspections are carried out.

It comes just days after a Boeing 737 plane with 50 passengers on board had to make an emergency landing just minutes after taking off.

The United Airlines plane lasted just minutes in the air before complaints of an irregularity with a wing were reported.

The plane left Fukuoka Airport in Japan last Friday morning at around 11.45am before swiftly being forced to turn back around, police said.

The runway at Fukuoka Airport was temporarily closed for routine safety checks after the emergency landing.

Meanwhile last week, The Sun reported on a burning plane skidding off the runway in Senegal.

The Boeing 737 jet was seen on fire as terrified passengers were forced to jump to the ground for safety at Dakar airport.

All 73 passengers were evacuated with fifteen of them being left injured - four of them seriously.

Hours earlier on Thursday, another Boeing jet suffered a technical issue, raising safety concerns and causing further headache for the aircraft giant.A total of 190 people had to be evacuated after their Corendon Airlines flight had a tyre burst during landing at the Gazipasa airport in Alanya, Turkey.

And last Wednesday a Boeing cargo belonging to the US mail service FedEx plane crash-landed on its nose.
