The Boeing 777 plane had to make an emergency landing in Denver on February 20th, this past weekend.
You might want to stop reading if you’re afraid of planes, but we will remind you that these sort of things hardly happen. That’s why there’s been so much buzz around the Boeing 777 plane that had engine failure. As in, giant hunks of metal were falling from the sky when one of the engines began to fall apart mid-flight.
I can’t imagine seeing this out an airplane window. United #328 safely returned to Denver after engine failed. Passengers cheered upon landing.

The Honolulu-bound plane, upon its engine trouble, doubled back towards Denver and landed at around 1:30 pm to a myriad of applause from passengers. United Airlines put out a statement on their Twitter stating, “Flight UA328 from Denver to Honolulu experienced an engine failure shortly after departure, returned safely to Denver and was met by emergency crews as a precaution. There are no reported injuries onboard. We are in contact with the FAA, NTSB and local law enforcement.”

While this isn’t a scene from Donnie Darko or even Breaking Bad for that matter, it’s still pretty surreal. The plane parts that fell among the Broomfield neighborhood but there were reportedly no injuries. Some property damage did occur. Following the incident, the U.K. has banned Boeing 777 models to fly over UK Airspace.
