Luggage box stuck in plane engine


A Japan Airlines flight was prevented from leaving Los Angeles International Airport on Monday when a metal luggage container was sucked into its engine.

The accident happened at around 1300 local time as the aircraft was preparing for take-off.

Authorities said the metal container may have been pulled into the engine after being parked too close to the aircraft.

No-one was injured.
