Despite a lot of debris missing from the aircraft, they managed to land the aircraft on the runway, after contacting the control tower at Denver International Airport for clearance for an emergency landing.
Fortunately, no injuries were to be deplored, but the passengers were still taken care of by the rescue teams, indicates LCI. ” The majority of customers who were on flight UA328 are currently en route to Honolulu on an alternate flight United Airlines later explained in a statement.

On social networks, many videos of the burning reactor have been published, showing that a disaster was narrowly avoided.
