Norway royals among 135 evacuated from plane

Norway's Crown Prince Haakon and his wife Mette-Marit were among 135 passengers evacuated from an SAS airliner Sunday after an engine blew up during take-off, Danish media reported.

The passengers had to slide down emergency chutes when smoke billowed into the passenger cabin after a loud bang came from one of the engines on the McDonnell-Douglas MD-82, the Politiken daily said on its website.

Mikkel Thrane, a spokesman for the Scandanavian airline, said "an engine problem caused smoke to enter the cabin."

The pilot aborted the take-off and the passengers could be evacuated quickly.

Nobody was injured in the incident at Copenhagen's Kastrup international airport.

Haakon said on Twitter shortly afterwards: "Morning turned out a bit more exciting than expected...Phew."
