An Air Caraibes Airbus A330-300, registration F-GOTO performing flight TX-570 from Paris Orly (France) to Cayenne (French Guyana), was climbing out of Orly's runway 08 when the crew reported engine trouble, stopped the climb at 3000 feet and returned to Orly for a safe landing on runway 06 about 17 minutes after departure.

A replacement Airbus A330-300 registration F-HPTP reached Cayenne as flight TX-5670 with a delay of 4 hours.

The incident aircraft is still on the ground at Orly 57 hours after landing.

The airline said the aircraft returned to Orly as a precaution, there was no engine or fire involved.

The airport confirmed the crew reported engine trouble.

Passengers reported seeing streaks of flames from the engine and white smoke, but did not report a bang. A burning smell subsequently developed on board of the aircraft.
