LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A Philippine Airlines flight returned to Los Angeles International Airport Thursday after experiencing engine trouble, giving passengers a scare as flames belched from one of the Boeing 777's engines.

No one was injured on the plane, which had been bound for the Philippines. The jetliner returned to LAX about 11:50 a.m., according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
