While many call the Apple iPhone one of the hottest gadgets ever, this probably isn’t what they had in mind.

Shortly after a Regional Express flight landed in Sydney, Australia on Friday, a passenger’s iPhone began “emitting a significant amount of dense smoke” accompanied by an eerie red glow. According to a press release issued by the airline, a flight attendant “extinguished” the device and no one was hurt.

The smartphone is now in the hands of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau while it investigates the incident. The iPhone owner, meanwhile, may have just switched his or her alliances over to Android.
