In the United States, the pilots managed to land United Airlines passenger plane, in which the engine exploded in the air after takeoff. There were more than two hundred passengers on board. After the incident, the United States decided to test all aircraft of this model.
What is known about the accident, told in the story TSN. Morning February 22.
There were 231 passengers and ten crew members on the raid from Denver to Hawaii. Within minutes of takeoff, the Boeing engine explodes and starts. Self-seekers are shocked, but have time to film everything through the windows. “My daughter was sitting by the window. I told her not to look. She said let’s close the window and just pray,” said passenger Brenda Don.
Pilots demand landing: “Reception! As soon as the engine fails, we need an immediate return.”
Passengers are frightened and scared. “It was a tense silence. It was as if there were no people around. I didn’t seem to realize the seriousness of the situation,” said Brett Guy, a passenger.
The plane continued to descend. Huge chunks of engine trim fell right on private detours and into parks in Broomfield, near Denver. Some of the engine itself flew into the yard. “I heard a loud rumble. At first I thought it was a military plane. It was flying just over the house. I could even see that the right engine was on fire,” said an eyewitness.
Even on one engine, Boeing reached the runway. Skilled pilots successfully landed the plane. There are no victims on the cover.
Experts will find out why the engine started. The US Federal Aviation Administration is still asking Broomfield residents not to touch the wreckage. They will be needed to establish the cause of the incident.
