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

    I am amazed that abbreviations are permitted on a checklist. Surely in any emergency, it is possible a non-pilot may be executing these instructions? Also, when people are leaning towards panic, the LAST thing your brain wants to do is remember so random acronym or abbreviation. What the hell is A/T? IMHO, very stupid.

    Sorry, the fire extinguishing agents do not affect the internal engine, but only external. Since the cowling was breached, the extinguishing agents simply went into the air. The flames were simply burning excess fuel and oil from the damage. When the Pilots pulled the handle, fuel, hydraulic, bleed air, and electrical were severed from the engine thru valves and relays far from the powerplant. Still a great video for most who fly but have no idea. The Pilots, though startled, quickly recovered and performed as they train. Awesome job by the crew and the aircraft as well!

    It failed safely. So that's nice. It could have been far worse. Sure, it should have been better. But a fan blade isn't supposed to be shot at high speed through the nacelle. I still am not sure if the nacelle was supposed to sheer off. Would containing it really have been better? 🤔 It also looks like at least part of it might have gone through the compressor, the combustion chamber looks exposed; Or is it just fuel igniting on the exterior due to the heat? 🧐 I like planes :|

    Turning into the dead engine is no big deal. A right turn would put them over runway 25. A left turn gives them the offset for an approach to runway 25. First officer Joe speculates frequently.

    Per the NTSB, the engine was a Pratt and Whitney. It did have a fan blade break off, believed to be due to metal fatigue. I believe all 777s with the Pratt and Whitney engines have been grounded for inspections.

    By using a hot wallet, the private keys will always be stored on a cloud storage which is always connected to the internet. There is always a risk of your wallet getting compromised if hackers manage to get a hold of your private keys. If your private keys are stolen, it is guaranteed that your coins will also be stolen from your wallet. these is my personal experience with my bitcoins which was stolen, At first i was scared i would never get it back as i had previously read a lot of stories about bitcoin theft and how the victims end up miserable, i contacted the authorities and they could not help because the hackers did a good job of transferring my bitcoins to multiple wallets, eventually i was referred to a recovery agent who was able to track my bitcoins to multiple wallets using what he called a ‘taintchain algorithm’, i must say michael veksler is one of the best; if not the only expert out there, capable of reversing bitcoin transactions from scammers back to the victims, i got all my stolen bitcoins in less than 36 hours and these saved my bar business from bankruptcy, You can reach KELVEN HARRY- {straighthacker99@gmail.com} 0r WhatssaPP +4(915)217853324

    Kind of terrifies me to think, but given that this plane was headed to Hawaii, what would have been the likely outcome if this same incident happened at the halfway point between California and Hawaii where they are 2.5 hours from the closest runway? Could they have flown for that long with that shaky engine?

    A few things: Some Boeing types refer to engine number , and some like the B777 by position left/right. Therefore there is no normal method. It is specific to aircraft type. Accelerating to 300 knots would not necessarily require and increase in thrust. The most likely thrust mode at the time was climb thrust which is typically less than thrust at take-off. The pilots decided to turn left . This has nothing to do with which engine failed. Asymmetric thrust does not significantly effect aircraft of this type when manoeuvring. Most likely the pre-flight briefing had determined that as a plan or terrain avoidance was the primary reason. When you state that determining if the engine was secure it would show on the EFIS. On the B777 it would show on the EICAS.

Exodus 3:14 (God speaking) And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. John 8:58 (Jesus speaking) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. John 10:30 (Jesus speaking) I and my Father are one. Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, *The everlasting Father,* The Prince of Peace. Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, *God with us.* John 1:1 & 14 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh (Lord Jesus), and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 8:24 (Jesus speaking) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. John 14:9 (Jesus speaking) Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Hebrews 1:1-3, & 8 (God calls His Son "O God" because Jesus IS God in the flesh) 1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things by whom also he made the worlds 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; *and every eye shall see him,* and they also which pierced him and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Isaiah 44:6 (God speaking) Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Revelation 1:8 (Jesus speaking) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, *the Almighty.* Revelation 22:13 (Jesus speaking) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. --- There Are None Righteous Romans 3:10 & 23 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Luke 5:31-32 (Jesus speaking) 31 And Jesus answering said unto them They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. 32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 1 Peter 3:18 (The word “quicken” means “to make alive”) For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    They more than likely would have used the QRH Engine severe damage/ separation checklist , unless UAL does things differently than other airlines. An emergency situation like this calls for the Quick Reference Handbook. The fire non-normal checklist is similar, but does not go into the vibration which was quite obviously there.
