US flight UA328 lands safely in Denver following engine failure

0

A passenger jet rained debris on the Denver suburbs, narrowly missing a home, after it suffered an engine failure shortly after takeoff on Saturday.
The Honolulu-bound United Airlines Flight 328 made an emergency landing at Denver’s international airport when one of the Boeing 777-200 engines experienced trouble and caught fire.
There were cheers of relief from passengers on the flight after a dramatic landing.

    Yes, pilots are trained to fly with only one of the two engines. Does that training cover flying when the vibrations from the engine tear half of the wing off? Just wondering.

      Afaik that shouldn’t happen the engine is attached with shear pins and if the forces get too dangerous the pins will shear off and the engine will drop

    If I was inside an airliner with a blown engine like this I would be scared motionless. The guy who took the footage was kind of calm though.

      Trust me when I tell you that when an engine catches fire or blows up, you cannot sit motionlessly. The only different thing is the lack of sounds around you (other than the wind, the engine rattle, and the Captain’s PA announcements).
      It happened to me on a flight in Southern America some years ago… 1 turboprop engine caught fire and the other one stopped shortly after take-off. The pilot had the presence of mind of turning around, restart an engine and take us all back on the ground. No crew member nor passenger was able to emit a sound but I took some pictures (with my film camera since mobiles were not yet able to take pictures).

    am i the only one who mentally cross boeing off my list? to never fly on?

      Not this specific plane. I only avoid 737MAX family. Everything else (737NG, 777, 747, etc.), I will fly.

    Great timing. Imagine that at the midway point over the Pacific.

    • OhioExPax15 Reply

      The 777, like any twin-engine, is made to operate safely on one engine. Had it happened over the Pacific, the Captain and F/O would have decided either to divert to a California airport, or continue to Honolulu.

      @OhioExPax15 -I was referring to the passenger stress factor.

    • OhioExPax15 Reply

      @s k gotcha, thanks.

      the FAA rated the b777 to fly for 180 min, they can turn around or carry on safely if it happened over the ocean

    Well at least the engine failed soon after departure, rather than the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I couldn’t image.

    I’d put my trust 10:1 in flying Airbus A3 series.

    • OhioExPax15 Reply

      Guess what? They use a lot of the same engines as Boeing. In fact, an Airbus A-330 has the same engine type, the Pratt & Whitney 4000, as was used on this Boeing. Most engines for the majors are either GE, P&W, or Rolls Royce.

    • Ryan Kelly Reply

      @OhioExPax15 True but Boeing assemblers are still the ones that hang em on the pylon.

    • OhioExPax15 Reply

      @Ryan Kelly and, so? Stop your fear-mongering.

    • Ryan Kelly Reply

      @OhioExPax15 Not fear mongering at all. I’m still not a fan of Boeing which is my opinion.

      You’re not required to agree.

    Looks like they used old beat up metal,cardboard, and toilet paper to build that thing.The wiring probably been done by a non qualified electrician and serviced by a drunk mechanic.

    • OhioExPax15 Reply

      I won’t try to talk you out of such nonsense, but consider all the hundreds of thousands of commercial flights, each year, with Boeing aircraft, or Airbus, or Embraer, or whoever, and how very few incidents, let alone accidents, occur. It’s a testament to those who build the aircraft, those who maintain them, those who fly them, and those who guide them in the air traffic control centers. There hasn’t been a crash of any type of plane flown by a U.S flag carrier since 2009. But again, I won’t try to change such ignorance.

      Not _just_ a spare. You do need both engines to maintain normal cruising altitude. But the redundancy is important too.
