PASSENGERS were reportedly ordered off a faulty AirAsia plane minutes before take off after the engine exploded.

In another blow to the troubled airline, passengers told Indonesia's Metro TV that the aeroplane was taxiing at Juanda International Airport in Surabaya on Saturday a loud bang was heard.

The aircraft was forced to return to its gate where the 120 passengers disembarked and waited for the engine to be fixed.

"The plane was ready and moved, but suddenly a loud sound was heard, the sound of the engine disappeared and the plane moved backwards. We were shocked and panicked," passenger Yusuf Fitriadi said, according to The Independent.

Mr Yusuf said most of the passengers refused to reboard the plane, with the airline refunding their fares, reported The Sunday Times.

It is the latest incident to hit the embattled airline after Flight QZ8501 crashed into the Java Sea more than a week ago, carrying 162 people from Indonesian city Surabaya to Singapore.

Investigators are searching desperately for the "black box" flight data recorders, as sonar imaging revealed a fifth large object in the search area measuring nearly 10 metres long.
