An Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to San Diego was forced to return to the airport in Seattle for an emergency landing shortly after departure Monday when an engine cover detached.

The cover of an engine can be seen flying off the Boeing 737-900 on video posted on social media by passengers on the plane.

Alaska Airlines said Tuesday that Flight 558 reported an “unusual vibration” on the left side of the plane shortly after departure.

The airline said no one was injured in the emergency landing and passengers were booked on other flights to San Diego.

There were 176 passengers and six crew members on the morning flight. The two pilots have more than 32 years of combined flying experience, according to the airline.

“They, along with our flight attendants, handled the incident with tremendous professionalism and care,” Alaska Airlines said. “We also greatly appreciated the patience of our guests during this event.”
