    One passenger suffered a fractured elbow and another suffered neck and back pain after the intense blast from a Ryanair aircraft engine knocked them to the ground at Seville airport.

    The Ryanair aircraft was preparing to depart from an airport stand and started its engines as it prepared to taxi, according to a report by Spain's air safety investigator CIAIAC.

    Passengers who were preparing to board an adjacent Ryanair aircraft were instructed to halt at a blast barrier. But the blast from the departing Ryanair aircraft impacted some of those passengers due to a gap in the blast barrier designed to shield them from such events.

    The incident occurred in October 2010 and the investigation has just recently been completed.
