On Monday, a Boeing 767 aircraft flown by Air Canada going to Toronto airport had to stop for an emergency landing. The plane reported a "technical issue", Spanish airport operator AENA said.

UPDATE: The aircraft made a safe — but jarring — landing, just after 1:00 PM ET.

The airliner advised air traffic control of their circumstances 30 minutes after takeoff and demanded a slot for an emergency landing, an AENA spokeswoman told Reuters. More details were not provided.

Yahoo Canada received a statement by Air Canada that the plane did indeed experience “engine issue” shortly after takeoff.

“A tire also reportedly ruptured on take-off, one of 10 on this model of aircraft. The aircraft opted to return to Madrid and is currently circling to use up fuel and lighten the aircraft for landing,” the statement, provided around 11:40 a.m. ET, reads.

“The aircraft, a Boeing 767-300, is designed to operate on one engine and our pilots are fully trained for this eventuality. Nonetheless, an emergency was declared in order to obtain landing priority. There are 128 passengers on board. We have no further details on the cause at present.”

With everyone on the ground, it seems crisis is (thankfully) averted.
