Passengers aboard an American Airlines flight got a scare at Tulsa International Saturday morning. The aircraft made an emergency landing just after takeoff from the airport.

"We were approximately 500 feet off the ground, we heard a boom, and then a secondary, larger boom, that was kind of scary, and we proceeded to turn around and land," said passenger James Helfanstine.

One of the planes two engines failed, authorities said. All 118 people on board made it off without any injuries.
