The BA flight had 94 passengers and six crew onboard the trip from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg. PE businessman Warren Mann was on the flight.

"The plane did go off at an angle. The pilot did very well to get it to a straight level. Subsequently, the engine did catch fire. We put the fire out, we had the evacuation spared," he said.
