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

    What would have happened if this happened whilst the aircraft was over the Pacific Ocean, say half way to it's destination? Could have it flown the rest of the way with one engine working and one engine in such a damaged state?

    5:11 - I'm not a pilot nor trained. But from what i heard- when engine fail - you NEVER turn towards failed engine direction. Bad example of that used to happen in Russia several years ago, when young pilot turned the plane towards failed engine - which resulted into the plane to lose speed and go into tailspin fall.

    I love you comment about keeping 2 person cockpits. This event and the famous landing on the Hudson clearly show that you need teamwork in failure situations. I'm sure there are plenty more, but these are the ones that come to my mind.

  54. Bob Greene

    Bob Greene7 uur geleden

    Having lived near Stapleton, we know there is only a brief interval to climb to cruise altitude before meeting the front range peaks, with updraft and downdraft situations. With diminishing time adding pressure on the pilot, this scenario was much more dangerous than it might have appeared. Controlling an engine fire is one thing, but holding course while doing checklists made the passenger applause all the more understandable.

    I would want you flying any plane I was on. I’ve always been deathly afraid of flying but have done it several times. I’ve been on flights that I thought were going DOWN. So glad to know that there’s specific protocol in place that can be followed by checklist. I still have a fear deep down. I feel like I should keep my feet on the ground... but at the same time, the technology is so amazingly intriguing. A little part of me never wants to fly again... but it’s a long boat ride from Philadelphia to Aruba 😅

    Overweight plane landing using friction brakes and spoilers only. I’d assume you can’t thrust reverse a single lateral engine. Brakes were probably damn near on fire.

    Big deal. (being sarcastic here) What if there was a turbine disk failure. That would be orders of magnitude higher of an issue. Cowling round the fan is designed for blades coming loose. You loose light weight items, soft items come off the nacelle and all looks dramatic, then you can come back and land on one engine. But turbine disks and areas around them, that's high energy areas. That can take out a lot more. RR had a spate of those a while back, taking out sections of the wing. RR has made some good improvements there.

    Hey Captain, at about 4:31 in your video, the pilot can be heard reporting the engine failure and requesting an immediate turn. There is a brief exchange with the tower and they agree to an immediate left turn. I suppose it may be pedantic but it seems to me that the pilot could have expressed the desire for the left turn in the initial request. What do you think? I wonder because in other circumstances, would the plane and tower not be better served with all necessary details in the initial request rather than back and forth? In some cases, the details may be much more elaborate than simply 'left turn'. (at least, as a layman I would imagine could be the case)
