Fragments of a Boeing 777 engine fell to the ground after a United Airlines flight from Denver to Honolulu crashed on Saturday, but the car, with 241 passengers on board, managed to return to Denver airport and land there. Nobody hurts.
US media shows photos of the neighborhood villas in Broomfield, Colorado. In one park, you can see large chunks of a Boeing engine that broke and fell to the ground. Broomfield Police said they had received no information on the wounded or material damages.
At the time of the failure, there were 231 passengers and 10 crew members on board. Passengers interviewed by CNN said that a “massive explosion” was heard shortly after takeoff. A passenger told an Associated Press reporter that the explosion occurred while the captain was making his routine announcement, and subsequently after reaching a cruising altitude. The footage shows that the engine was on fire.
According to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released Saturday evening, the right engine of the machine was damaged. The failure occurred at 1:00 PM local time on Saturday (2:00 PM in Poland).
Broomfield Police have urged residents not to touch Boeing shrapnel under any circumstances before the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) complete their investigation.
