Particles from a United Airways airplane falls in a neighborhood Denver neighborhood after the airplane suffers an engine failure
A community in Broomfield, Colorado received a surprise on Saturday when parts of a United Airlines plane fell from the sky.
According to ABC News, the FAA said in a statement that the Boeing 777-200 had to make an emergency landing at Denver International Airport after an engine failure. The flight was from Denver to Honolulu when a problem with the correct engine arose shortly after takeoff.
Videos and photos of engine smoking flooded social media, as well as videos and photos of parts of the engine that broke off and fell in the front yards of people’s homes. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported.
The airline stated that there were a total of 231 passengers and 10 crew members on the plane. Fortunately, everyone was rebooked on another flight to Honolulu.
David Delucia, a passenger across from the failed engine, said, “The plane started shaking violently and we lost altitude and took off. When it initially happened I thought we were done. I thought we were going down. “
Tyler Thal, a local witness, said, “As I was looking at it, I saw an explosion and then the cloud of smoke and some debris falling from it. It was like a speck in the sky and as I watch it I tell my family what I just saw and then we heard the explosion. The plane just kept going and we didn’t see it after that. “
The National Transportation Safety Board is currently investigating the incident.
