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

    Was it just me or did the air traffic controller kind of use ‘regular’ speech not all the ‘plane jargon’ after the pilot alerted there was a problem? Totally understandable

    Your final comments indicate there is a movement towards single pilot crews? That's crazy, as a member of the flying public I do not approve.

    There was no mention of fuel dump. As the plane was heavy, could have caused a fire.

    It costs just $170 to have the fan blades inspected for metal fatigue yet some companies skip this inspection to increase their profits, probably even more-so now because of what the pandemic has done to the airlines.

    The so called Aviation experts that are featured on Network & Cable News shows should subscribe to your videos. They could learn how to explain situations like this to John Q. Public that would not put the fear of flying traveling public. Having been in several very scary inflight & on the ground incidents myself, I know the fear that passengers experience.

  • humanhiveanomaly

    @4:00 was it uncontained? The blade and a half that broke (at least from the view point of the video) didn't seem to breach the nacelle. When I hear "uncontained" it is a specific failure where blade fragments exit the nacelle, something designed with extreme priority to protect against (due to piercing vitals of machine and people).

      @Cassie Often I understand. But maybe, in this case, the need to do so was put to one side, bye the need to land asap...

    There was a lot learned from United Flight 232 when an engine failure killed the hydraulics on a DC 10 in flight and forced to land in Kansas. The aircraft totally lost control of the flight control surfaces with 183 passengers on board. The pilot and co pilot as well as the engineer flew purely on engines with the plane stuck in a slow left turn. The engine failure in question caused all three hydraulic systems on board the aircraft to fail because of hydraulic line routing. It was a serious design flaw. Thankfully having learned from a disaster that redundancy should have prevented Exemplary pilot skill saved the say considering that most of the passengers survived the impending crash when the jet hit the runway way too fast and with absolutely no brakes whatsoever. It cartwheeled into a nearby corn field and thankfully as I said most of the passengers survived thanks the the skill and cool heads of the cockpit crew! All aircraft are built with redundancy in mind. If one engine dies it will not take out the hydraulic systems of the aircraft causing a catastrophic control failure. In like there is a dual hydraulic system in all twin engine aircraft backed with one driven by the APU, or Auxiliary Power Unit. It is all for the safety of the passengers and people on the ground. The engineering of aircraft has gone through a lot of evolution and in the end pilot skill is what makes or breaks aviation. Thank whatever it is that grants us such skilled and cool headed personnel in times like this!!!

    i never knew there was ever a debate on whether a plane should have 1 pilot or 2... good lord I hope we always have 2 pilots. i mean imagine the only pilot having a heart attack and no one able to fly the plane...

    A little different `checklist philosophy on the ´Bus; taught from day one that "there are no memory items on the checklist." It doesn´t matter how many times you practise ENG OUT in the sim, it really focuses the mind when it happens for real. Very well done to all concerned.

    Another example why we should be thankful for engineers. These engines are designed to contain most of the spinning mass in a blade off event. The pilot gets the praise in most of these events but without the engineering in our modern world most outcomes would have no happy endings.

    I couldn't imagine being in any of there shoes. Good thing they had a well experienced pilot. I think people forget these pilots lives are on the line just as much as the passengers and they will do what ever it takes to go home safe.

    The plain truth is that Boeing main priority is being WOKE now hiring based off of skin color and not talent, skills, not experience. Quality control, manufacturing, and servicing planes is now last priority.

    Thank you Captain Joe for the tremendous explanation and analysis you have made. You are that excellent and Brilliant person that different individuals would like to listen to, and fetch the exact information needed. I always refer most of my pals to listen to your tutorials. Indeed you are the best as you have always been, but this video has definitely taught me that you are an Aviation Icon .

    I was diagnosed with herpes 7 month ago the Doctor told me there was no cure to this infection, l was only given antiviral Herpevex Acyclovir 800mg for 5days, 5times daily, the doctor said it will not kill the virus ,only slowing it a bit from spreading to other part. l was on this for the past 4months no improvement. So there was a day l came across with a testimony from a friend, so l contacted this man on getting his herbal remedy for this infection, which l paid for and received medicine after a week and some days with instruction on how to take medicine attacked. I take medicine for 2weeks before going to the hospital for test...l can show to you now that am herpes free! 😊😊. I fully believed there is a herbal cure for herpes now. l am also using this means to inform you out there to get yours as well!.. contact Dr. Robinson via Email:(drrobinsonherbalremedy1@gmail.com)

    A quick question about the runway they landed on please? Why did they select runway 26 when it - and 4 others were only 12,000 feet - instead of selecting 34L/16R which would have given them an extra 4,000 feet being 16,000 feet long? Admittedly, we don't hear what the wind conditions were, but looking at the local conditions on that day, there really didn't seem to be too much of an wind influence no matter which runway, so wouldn't the extra 4,000 feet have been helpful? I know that for myself, I would always select to have extra runway length if the wind speed/direction is not going to be too detrimental a factor....... Which of course raises the question about what is the 'tipping point' for you in commercial aircraft in selecting length of runway over wind speed/direction?
