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

    Isn't there a risk that while they're running through the lengthy checklist, the fire will weaken structural members in the wing, and it fails? How bad does a fire have to be for the crew to abandon the checklist and try to land immediately? What if they were losing consciousness? Glad they all made it in this case!

    When they say they need to check checklists what exactly do they mean by that?

  38. Pilot Ready

    Pilot ReadyПре 2 сата

    Checklists are basically instructions/directions for pilots to follow whether if it’s a normal flight, or a flight with an emergency. They are there to make sure pilots aren’t forgetting something important like the lights or raising or retracting the landing gear.

    Fan blade flew, engine cowling couldn't hold the blown out blade. Boom. It shows the brilliance that goes into aircraft construction that a failure like this happens and the jets still under complete control and can land on one engine.

    A very refreshing change of pace from the general negativity of the past few months in particular; seeing a video like this explaining the procedures these pilots went through and praising them for an outstanding job well done is very nice. Shit happens, things undergo catastrophic failures from time to time. What matters is how those failures are handled, and in this case the failure was handled flawlessly by all parties involved. A very welcome dose of positivity around an otherwise very harrowing subject.

    I was on the tower radio for USAIR in Dec 1987 in Philadelphia when Flt*225 a Boing 737_200 series PHYSICALLY lost an engine at about 5000ft during takeoff. The engine landed in Depford NJ. The Plane RTF without any injuries. What I learned is the engine broke loose from the rear mount and accelerated up over the wing because it was under takeoff power. The WHOLE engine went over the wing and lightly and clipped the rudder. Could of been horrible but those Vietnam era pilots were well trained.

    I stand by what I said earlier and if any I get any ridicule, it will be reported. You calling yourself "Captain" Joe is false advertising and falsely representing your current position as a pilot. You wear the three stripes of a First Officer. One of your compatriots who has another channel, not sure if you even know of him, Mentour Pilot IS in fact a bona fide four stripe captain of his airline, on Boeing 737s if I recall correctly. I've reported your channel for the false information in your channel name.
