What: Caribbean Airlines ATR 72 en route from Trinidad/Tobago to Caracas
Where: Piarco International Airport Trinidad and Tobago
When: October 25, 2012
Who: Four crew, 48 passengers
Why: On takeoff, a panel on the plane became detached. One source identified the detached part as an engine panel. Another source called it an “exterior panel.” A third source indicated there was debris on the runway.

The pilot dealt with an engine fire indication, and returned to the airport to make a safe landing with emergency services on standby. Passengers disembarked and the panel was examined.

Passengers were provided an alternative flight which left at 10:00 a.m.
