A passenger onboard a flight in Chile captured the frightening moment their aircraft began to fall apart during takeoff.

The clip shows the casing fly off the engine of the Airbus A319-100 as it took off from Chile's capital Santiago on Wednesday morning.

The terrifying footage of the Sky Airline plane falling apart has gone viral as most of us see an incident like this as our worst nightmare.

The plane, which had 137 passengers on board, did take off but returned to the airport for an emergency landing 25 minutes later.

There were no injuries.
