Passenger Horror Story When Boeing 777 Engine Burns in the Air


Jakarta

The wreckage of a passenger plane fell in a residential area near Denver after one of its engines died during takeoff.

The Boeing 777, with 231 passengers and 10 crew on board, was able to return safely and land at Denver airport. There were no reports of injuries in the incident.

Police in the City of Broomfield posted a photo of what looks like the front of a machine case in the front garden of a house.

The passengers on the plane described there was a “huge explosion” shortly after takeoff.

Flight 328, a plane belonging to United Airlines airline Denver to Honolulu, suffered a malfunction in the engine to the right, the American Aviation Authority (FAA) said.

A passenger who was on the flight told the news agency AP that the pilot was giving the announcement when a loud explosion occurred.

“The plane started to shake violently, and we lost altitude and we started descending,” said David Delucia.

He added that he and his wife put their wallets in their pockets so that “should we fall, we can be identified”.

Photos posted online showed smoke billowing from the engine.

One video that appears to have been shot from inside the plane shows the engine burning and the casing falling off.

The incident occurred on Saturday (20/02) around 13.00 local time.

Broomfield Police advised residents not to touch or move debris. Meanwhile the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will conduct an investigation.

A Broomfield resident told CNN that she saw debris falling from the plane and took cover with her children as it started falling

“We saw it fly, we heard a big explosion, we looked up, there was black smoke in the sky,” said Kieran Cain.

“Debris started raining down, which you know, looked like it was floating and not very heavy, but the truth is that now when you look at it, there are giant chunks of metal all over the place.”
