United Airlines has suspended 24 Boeing 7s. The BBC reports that the fire broke out in the engine of one of the company’s planes on Saturday. Boeing currently has 79 aircraft in various airlines around the world.
Fire and smoke billowed from one of the two engines of a United Air Boeing plane on Saturday en route from Denver to Hawaii with more than two hundred passengers on board. After a while, various parts of the engine started falling on the house below. In the end, the plane made an emergency landing. Its 231 passengers and 10 passengers were saved from certain death.
A video footage captured on the plane’s interior camera shows a fire burning in the right wing of a Boeing 8-200 flying in the sky. White smoke is coming out. In this situation, the plane is running fast. Authorities say no one on board the plane was killed or injured in the crash.

David Delusia is one of the passengers on death row after the plane’s engine caught fire. “To be honest, I thought we were going to die soon,” he told a local newspaper. Because after the explosion, the plane tilted to the right and started falling down. I grabbed his wife’s hand. I mean, this is our last meeting on earth.
