Smoke rose from the engine of a Vietnam Airlines aircraft shortly before the aircraft completely stopped at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City Monday.


The Airbus A330 carrying 166 passengers and 13 crew members from Melbourne, Australia, was on the runway after landing when the crew members saw smoke emitting from the number two engine at around 3:55 p.m.


The crew performed necessary measures to resolve the technical problem, Vietnam Airlines said in a release.


The passengers exited the plane normally, it said.


Vietnam Airlines is still investigating what caused the smoke.


The Airbus A330 was put into operation by Vietnam Airlines in 2010.


It underwent its most recent periodical technical inspection on May 20.
