An Air France flight en route from Paris to Los Angeles was forced to make an emergency landing in Canada after one of its engines suffered "serious damage".

Air France said the flight's crew made the decision to divert the plane and said the pilots and crew handled the situation "perfectly". "It was like the plane hit a Jeep at 35,000 feet", Adams said in a phone interview.

The airline said in a statement that no one was injured in the incident.

References in the speech made to North Korea threatening America and Japan with nuclear power indicate that the speech was recent. Thursday's message comes nearly a year after the last message that was made public in November, 2016.

One passenger recalled the incident to the New York Daily News, saying, "We heard a big popping sound, and the airplane basically dropped, and it was trembling". It was not immediately clear how the engine became damaged.

Rather than worry, Adams said she tried to provide emotional support and bond with other passengers.

The double-decker, wide body aircraft was re-routed as it passed over Greenland, landing in Goose Bay at 1542 GMT, the spokesman said. The aircraft was met on the runway by fire crews, but they were not needed, though there was considerable debris after it touched down.
