    The engine cover of a Frontier Airlines plane fell off after it departed Las Vegas, forcing the aircraft to land, USA Today reports.

    The Airbus 320, which was carrying 171 passengers and 6 crew members, had to abort its flight from Las Vegas, Nevada to Tampa, Florida on Friday, USA Today reports.

    After only several minutes in the air, the passengers saw through the window that the engine cover was falling off and quickly alerted flight attendants.

    The pilots performed an emergency landing at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas. None of the passengers or crew members were injured.
