Pilot, a pilot instructor and a mechanic were flying a jet skis when a flap caught fire, leaving them trapped inside and forcing them to abandon their plane.
The men had just left the runway in the southern town of Mabuti when a tailpipe caught fire.
“We looked at each other and we said, ‘What’s going on?'” said Tarek Al-Khaliqi, who worked on the plane for several years and is now retired.
They tried to cut the plane in half, but couldn’t.
Instead, they decided to try and get the plane to land.
As they tried to get the planes wheels to the ground, they heard a bang.
Two other men in the jet skines heard it and raced to help.
A second helicopter arrived minutes later, bringing the remaining men to safety.
It is not yet known how many people were injured, but there are reports of one man in critical condition.
Authorities have not released the identities of the men involved, but the incident has been reported as a pilot incident.
According to aviation authorities, a small flap in a tail pipe could cause a crash in which the tailpipe ruptures.
However, experts say this is rare and that most people’s tailpipes have been safely repaired.
There are two reasons for the flap in the tailpipe: A crack or tear in the plastic housing.
When the hole is big enough, the flap can get stuck and then pop open.
Experts say if the hole does not get enough air to allow the flap to pop open, it will rupture and damage the plane’s internal structure.
Other aircraft have experienced similar incidents and accidents.
Some airlines have tightened their standards to prevent this from happening again.
An Airbus A320 that was at Mabudi Airport in Somalia.
Tarek, who flew it for several decades, was one of the first people to get out of the plane.
“We were very lucky,” he said.
While many people may be familiar with the plane, he says they are often not aware of what is going on.
This is not the first time a plane has caught fire inside the tail pipe of a jet.
In 2013, a Cessna 172 crashed in the north-eastern town of Mogadishu, killing all 182 people on board.
But this is the first case that has killed people in Somalia as a result of the flapping flap.
Somalia is one of three countries in Africa to suffer from the epidemic of a severe respiratory illness called COPD, which is caused by COVID-19.
Last week, Somalia was hit by another serious respiratory illness, the second in less than a week.
WHO has warned that the virus may spread to the US, Europe and Canada.
