An Ethiopian Airlines' Boeing 777 cargo plane caught fire while loading cargo at Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Wednesday. The fire was later contained.
In a Facebook post, the airlines said that the cause of the incident was under investigation. The aircraft was on a regular scheduled cargo service from Shanghai to Sao Paulo-Santiago, it said.
Pictures and videos circulating over social media showed heavy smoke pouring from the aircraft, and large section of the upper fuselage appeared scorched.
