Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
On the 20th of February 2021, a United Boeing 777-200, registration N772UA performing flight UA-328 from Denver,CO to Honolulu,HI (USA) with 231 passengers and 10 crew, was in the initial climb out of Denver's runway 25 when the right hand engine's (PW4077) inlet separated associated with the failure of the engine. The crew declared Mayday reporting an engine failure. The aircraft stopped the climb at about 13000 feet, the crew requested to return to Denver after running the checklists. ATC offered any runway, they would make it happen. The aircraft returned to Denver for a safe landing on runway 26 about 23 minutes after departure. The aircraft stopped on the runway for a check by emergency services. Emergency services advised of an active fire within the right hand engine and extinguished the fire a few minutes later. The aircraft was subsequently towed off the runway to a remote parking stand, where passengers disembarked and were bussed to the terminal. There were no injuries.
The engine inlet fell into the neighbourhood of Broomfield,CO, located about 16nm west of Denver near 13th and Elmwood Street, the debris also struck through the roof of an adjacent house.
Broomfield police reported that although debris impacted the neighbourhood and damaged a number of homes, there were no injuries on the ground. The debris field expands over a nautical mile.
Ground observers reported hearing the sound of an explosion like bang, smoke and saw the debris falling down. The aircraft continued flying.
Watch the video to learn more about what happened!
Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
Wishing you all the best!
Your "Captain" Joe

    If the FAA warned you a Boeing Plane had a 35% chance of crashing, would you fly in that plane? If your a simple moron you would.
    65% success rate on a Vaccine for people over 65 years is extremely poor odds. Trudeau is dicing and playing with death with the old people,

    I have a question: why working hours in piston engines and number of startings in turbines are counted? Is it related with bearings for turbine shaft (I suppose that will be oil or gas bearings) or is it some other reason?

    On a motorcycle you are taught to rev the engine during a u-turn as the spinning engine acts as gyroscopic stabilization. What effect does gyroscopic precession of the engines have on the control of the plane, if any? I guess it would effect pitch and yaw?

    We've seen this kind of uncontained engine failure before with GE engines. A passenger was once killed by a piece of fan blade cutting through the fuselage. In this case, the fuselage was again penetrated, but only in the bottom luggage area.
    I believe Rolls-Royce engines are designed to contain such events. Why aren't GE engines designed with safety in mind.

    I'm still a bit confused about the turning preference. I hope you could help explain me. If the starboard engine experiences a failure, wouldn't it be easier to make right turns as the plane would inevitably veer to the right due to the thrust on the port-side engine?

    Oh Captain my Captain. Regarding the left-hand turn to go back to KDEN. Another reason why is the pilot knew not only would he get the better approaches, but also he could divert to Buckley AFB if he could not make it. Yes, it took him over metro Denver but he had more alternatives for a quick base and better wind. We had 13 gusting 22 that day due to a low front.

    Are checklists more important than landing the plane immediately? Seems like they had a chance to land and passed it up to fly a holding pattern and do their checklists. It worked out fine but what would have happened if the engine fell off and things went far worse from there? Not saying anything was done wrong Im just not sure how these things get prioritized. Good video

      @Oro Flows in 2013 american airlines flight 191 taking off from chicago had its left engine detach & fall off due to bad maintenance, few seconds later the aircraft banked a very hard left and crashed, no one survived, but the turn wasn't caused by the engine falling off, the engine ripped through a hydraulic line & damaged some of the wing's leading edge, which in turn caused uneven lift on the wings which made the airplane bank and almost become inverted the plane was still climbing fine for a few seconds after the engine detached so with this i think its safe to say on a twinjet if one engine falls off its mere luck whether anything else crucial gets damaged

      @The Beast I guess I somewhat compared the situation with an active fire in that if the engine fell off the areodynamics of one engine creating drag, while the other wing had nothing there, would likely render the plane unflyable. From your take however Im assuming your confident the plane could still be landed using rudder inputs to offset the imbalance in drag or maybe are willing to chance it until "if" the engine falls off becomes reality. I dont even know if they can fall off tbh. Ive never seen that scenario so I wonder if a missing engine plane is actually flyable with enough talent.

      unless all engines on an aircraft are gone, or there is a fire going on that cant be extinguished, there really is no need to prioritize landing before checklists infact there is not a single event where landing would be prioritized before checklists, unless you dont have the time to do longer checklists

    Cool video and glad everyone made it ok. but I am confused why the pilots chose the furthest runway instead of 35 L?. It's just as long as the other runways and instead of making a shallower sweep to get to 35L, they instead make a longer sweep to go to 26. The furthest runway. Seems 35L would have put them on the ground faster.

    I know this doesn't have anything to do with the video, but I would like to share these questions and this message with as many people as possible.

    1. What do you think happens to someone after they die?
    2. Do you think there is an afterlife?
    3. If heaven exists, how do you get there?
    4. Do you think you are good enough to get into heaven?

    I'm definitely not good enough to get into heaven. Here are a few questions to test your goodness:

    1. How many lies have you told in your whole life?
    2. Have you ever stolen?
    3. Have you ever used God's name in vain?
    4. Jesus said that "whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5:28). Have you ever looked with lust?
    5. If you have broken any of these commandments, would you be innocent or guilty on Judgment Day?
    6. Would you go to Heaven or Hell?

    The Bible says that "all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone" (Revelation 21:8) and "Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people — none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). So, if you are guilty of any of the ten commandments, then you are in trouble when Judgment Day comes! Do you know what God did for guilty sinners so that we wouldn't have to go to Hell?

    2,000 years ago, God became a human being, Jesus of Nazareth, who suffered and died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead on the third day, defeating death. The punishment that we deserve for breaking God's law, Jesus took in our place. He paid the fine that we could never pay so that God can legally set us free by forgiving our sins. He is just, by punishing evil through Jesus' death on the cross, while being rich in mercy towards us.

    What you have to do is repent, or turn toward God, and believe in Jesus Christ. Don't trust your own goodness, because, as Jesus said, "No one is good — except God alone" (Mark 10:18). Trust alone in the savior. The moment you do that, God will forgive every sin you have ever committed and grant you eternal life, and He will give you a new heart with new desires, so that you will love to do what is right. You will be born again. But you must repent and trust in Jesus.

    When are you going to do that?

    Here is a short Christian movie on this subject and depression: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcqxzXMRGoc
