Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
On the 20th of February 2021, a United Boeing 777-200, registration N772UA performing flight UA-328 from Denver,CO to Honolulu,HI (USA) with 231 passengers and 10 crew, was in the initial climb out of Denver's runway 25 when the right hand engine's (PW4077) inlet separated associated with the failure of the engine. The crew declared Mayday reporting an engine failure. The aircraft stopped the climb at about 13000 feet, the crew requested to return to Denver after running the checklists. ATC offered any runway, they would make it happen. The aircraft returned to Denver for a safe landing on runway 26 about 23 minutes after departure. The aircraft stopped on the runway for a check by emergency services. Emergency services advised of an active fire within the right hand engine and extinguished the fire a few minutes later. The aircraft was subsequently towed off the runway to a remote parking stand, where passengers disembarked and were bussed to the terminal. There were no injuries.
The engine inlet fell into the neighbourhood of Broomfield,CO, located about 16nm west of Denver near 13th and Elmwood Street, the debris also struck through the roof of an adjacent house.
Broomfield police reported that although debris impacted the neighbourhood and damaged a number of homes, there were no injuries on the ground. The debris field expands over a nautical mile.
Ground observers reported hearing the sound of an explosion like bang, smoke and saw the debris falling down. The aircraft continued flying.
Watch the video to learn more about what happened!
Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
Wishing you all the best!
Your "Captain" Joe

    About that, its just your oppinion, that its unwise, cos its hard to finish the turn over the dead engine. That is middle school level physics. The plane is already tilted with that side down, and theres no thrust on that side, and you might not level it back up. And also, harder to straighten the plane, because that side of the plane is a bit backwards compared to other side. It would fuck up balance in all 3 axis X,Y and Z. So i just say, very simple physics are under that training, why you do turn over the engine that is not dead.

    Especially at Laguardia Airport because they have a short runway and you really have to gun it right from the start it's crazy powerful depending on the engine weight/balance load of the particular aircraft sometimes it can almost feel like a long shot

    That was the first time I felt simulated acceleration and it was absolutely mind blowing I'll never forget that moment it was so powerful I happened to be leaning forward and I had to hold onto the seatback in front of me Now everytime I'm on a plane takeoff when I feel my body being pinned to my seat back it's the most exhilarating feeling in the world I crave it

    Fan blade failures. The bane of P&W. F111F withTF30-P100 shed a fan blade from the #2 into the aft fuel tank, followed by pressurized fuel flow back into the hot, failing engine. immediate engine and fuselage fires. Roman candle in the sky, engine and fuselage fire suppression system actuated but ineffective. Almost EVERY light on the caution panel on. The taxpayers got that jet back a few seconds later. Nylon letdown.

    This was a really cool and informative breakdown of the event. I'm not a nervous flyer, I actually enjoy the rare chances I get, but getting a peek behind the curtain (well, in this case cockpit door) during an emergency makes me even more comfortable, and I hope it helps the nervous flyers by giving them a boost of confidence in the crew and ATC.

    Nice analysis; except, technically speaking, the event wasn't an "uncontained" failure, the kevlar around fan seems to be intact - no fan blade penetration through kevlar.

  • Me

    This probably never happened but what if the engine blows up and makes a big hole the wing

  • USMC Mustang

    I flew on a United flight from Honolulu to San Diego. Sat right over the right wing. The engine had a very steady and very irritating intermittent vibration, which I recognized as a harmonic balance issue. Obviously wearing hard on the fan, blades, bearings, internals.... I notified the steward at landing, and told her to tell the captain, That he/she would want to know.... I was told "not to worry. That is just the way the engines sound" ... I always wondered when THAT engine exploded in the air ... 🤔😐😞

    Who is this idiotic FO. He's talking to the viewers like they're 5 years old. Prise your fingertips apart and stop steepling. It's a gesture that is associated with complete arrogance. AND you are not a captain. You're a right-hand seat, 3-bar, first officer.


    It all started when Boeing became Boing...

  • Deepak

    This is why if you’re rich and own a private jet you want a Dassault they have three engines. The triple engine model was good but obviously it isn’t the most economical or maintenance oriented.

    do they still offshore these for maintenance ? or is it done in the US ? who designed the hollow fan blade wheels and who approved their use ? also where are they cast and then machined?

    How does flying on one engine affect the control of your aircraft, because your thrust is no longer balanced around the center of mass? Seems like the plane would want to veer to the right.

    Great analysis including the audio from VSA. This flight was bound for HNL, so I was thinking that if the engine failure had occurred half ways onto the flight, it would have been an even more stressful experience for the everyone, as there are no alternative airports for landing. It would be either LAX/SFO or HNL itself. Two hours flying with that engine vibrating like that... I don't know. I am happy everything ended well.

    Why do you refer to the cabin crew in the diminutive? I’m confident that they are not minors and you’re expressing your own subconscious opinion that they are lesser. Funny, you went on to say how important the whole team is.

    Back in 2011 I travelled to Turkey from Kosovo and in way back from Antalya to Istanbul it was fine. But the flight from Istanbul to Prishtina was bit bumpy. When we arrived in Prishtina on the runway there was a tick fog so visibility was probably 1 meter about 3 feet. I was in the middle of the airplane near the emergency exit. But upon arriving into the runway that fog may caused some problems. When the airplane hit the runway with back wheels it jumped about 2 meters 6 feet and then it went down to the runway slowly. That was the scariest landing so far for me so far.

    Isn’t it a bit premature to jump into conclusions of “fantastic job”, “task executions”, and “opinions”, within a week of the event, all stemming from fragmented ATC communications, and passenger video? Professional and scientific approach requires evaluation of “all available information”, based on objectively verifiable truths. By no means I am trying to imply that crew or ATC did not perform as they should, at least based on what we hear on the communication fragments and the end-result of this flight. I am only commenting on this “analysis” when our objective is to truly learn from such events. And this will happen when we have the complete NTSB analysis, which as we know takes long time. Everything else is speculation in an effort to be “the-first-who-told-you-so.”

    I disagree. A computer could have performed the checklist just as well. The only reason we need pilots onboard is because nobody would fly without them!

  • SoccerPro101

    Just after takeoff, the wings are full of fuel. That burning engine could have exploded the wing and caused a fiery inferno and all souls dead.

    And they say planes of the future will be pilotless . :))

    From 4:15 the tower has heard VERY CLEAR what is going on. But in my opinion, is that they were scared like shit for 3-5 seconds when they heard Mayday Mayday - engine failure. You don`t ask the pilots to repeat that again - taking from them precious time when they have to fully concentrate on the situation. This is not a joke. You just act! Pilots acted ice-cold - professional
