Moments of horror for the passengers of an airplane, after its engine exploded during the flight


Several parts of the engine casing of a United Airlines Boeing 777-200 plane crashed into a residential area on the outskirts of Denver on Saturday after it exploded.

The plane landed safely and no one was injured, News.ro reports.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced that the plane returned to Denver International Airport after having a major engine problem right shortly after takeoff. The aircraft was destined for Honolulu.

United Airlines said 231 passengers and ten crew members were on the plane. All passengers were given seats on the next flight to Hawaii.

Images of circular pieces of the carcass and other fragments that fell in a residential area about 40 miles north of Denver have appeared on social media.

Videos were also posted on Twitter, made both from the plane and from ground level.

The passengers said the plane was close to cruising altitude and the commander of the aircraft was making an announcement when a loud explosion occurred, accompanied by a bright light.

“The plane started to shake violently, we lost altitude and the plane started to go down. At first, I thought it was over. We thought we were collapsing. ” said David Delucia.

He and his wife took out their wallets with their driver’s licenses and put them in their pockets.

“If we collapsed, we could be identified.”, Delucia explained.

John Cox, an aviation safety expert, said that although the appearance of a burning engine is frightening, most of these incidents do not result in loss of life.
