On 3 November, an Estelar Latinoamérica aircraft (type and registration currently unknown) operated a charter flight between Caracas Simon Bolivar Airport, Venezuela and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. During the flight, the aircraft suffered an engine failure forcing the pilots to return to Caracas.
One passenger said that after the engine failure smoke was produced in the cabin and that the pilots engaged the oxygen masks. The airline confirmed the incident on social media stating that: “According to the procedures of the aircraft and complying with the safety procedures in charge of the crew at the time of descent, the oxygen supply system was activated, generating the deployment of the masks.”
After the landing, passengers rushed to social media to report. Some passengers, however, mentioned that the oxygen masks didn’t work.
