Passengers on an Air France flight from Paris to Los Angeles have endured two hours of terror, after one of the plane's engines blew apart over the Atlantic.

There was a loud bang as the front of the engine tore itself apart, and then vibrations shook the entire plane.

The plane diverted to Canada, where it made a smooth emergency landing.
