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!

This is a classical example of how well simulator time for pilots under same type of situations. plays an life saving role for all on board and on the ground in many cases. Job well done by this pilot. co pilot and crew. as capt joe said its a "Team" effort. right down to the guy on the ground with s shovel. Thanks for sharing

I must say I was prepared to roll my eyes in disgust primarily because of the Channel name and the obvious First Officer’s uniform. But, I must say you did a pretty good job with the video, especially this early after the event. I will say that your assumption as to the direction of the turn decision probably shows a little bit of inexperience on your part. At this level of flying and the level of equipment being flown primary multiengine turning performance from training aircraft is only a passing memory, if it is even a conscious thought. In training, this level of aircraft is routinely flown with full turns and maneuvers in all directions in a single engine configuration. No, you would not be making steep turns into the dead engine but normal maneuvering would not be an issue. The rest of your video is very good, especially as I previously stated, for this early after the event. Your single pilot verses two pilots, or crew concept coordination, is dead on, pun intended. My comments come from the context of a retired airline Captain with somewhere north of 28,000 hours and thirty years of commercial flying. The crew selection process along with the annual repetitive training and practice are the keys to our industry’s safety level. Unfortunately, not all air carriers worldwide are able to provide the same level of training nor are they able to select crews to the same level of experience and abilities. Good job on the video and this crew did a great job. I’ll bet if you asked them they would call it “just another day at the office”.

This is a great video! Great explanation. I did not see or hear any of the communication on national news. Both the pilots and the ground crew did amazingly well. It was cool how Denver must have cleared all of the airport of other aircraft to allow them to land anywhere they wanted. The footage of the engine in static testing was very informative. Great to have everyone safe. Did Captain Joe say ?a 48 hour flight?

Matthew 25:31-46 New International Version (NIV) The Sheep and the Goats 31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ 44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” -------------- ------------------- ========================== ----

While it is easy to make an incident analysis video disrespectful, especially so soon, you have found a great balance in breaking down the event point-by-point, giving valuable input as an experienced pilot, and not overstepping the mark by making needless assumptions. I do hope to see more of these (though hopefully, they will be few and far between!)

Good video!!! Just a comment: It should be a CONTAINED Engine Failure. Fan Cases, also known as Fan CONTAINMENT Cases are designed to withstand a so called Fan Blade Off Event. Btw. the embedded video shows the Fan Blade Off test which has to be passes during the approval of an Engine model. Your German Propulsion Engineer 😉

Impressively professional handling of the situation by all involved. However, did the pilot dump a lot of fuel , over the populated area, in order to reduce weight to max gross landing weight? I am an ex-starfighter (F-104) pilot and remember that when landing with more than 1000 lbs of fuel on board, landing speed had to be increased and ground roll got ridiculously long.

10/10 flying by the pilots, and 10/10 tower crews. This is the type of event that inspires confidence in commercial flight. Absolutely perfect handling by the crew, and the plane just didn't care that such a catastrophic failure happened because it was built to survive serious failures without risk to passengers. Thanks, Captain Joe, for a fantastic analysis.

Note that the extinguisher agent is discharged into the cowling (not turbine) zone outside of the engine cases and since the cowling was "shaken" off, it would have been ineffective. Also as a side note an ETOPS approved 777 can fly 180 minutes + on 1 engine if there is a failure, this flight was scheduled to Hawaii so it would have ETOPS approval. Would not be a fun event halfway across the Pacific with no alternates. Love the "union" plug for no single-pilot flights. Looks like a bad day at the office was handled well, most aviation fatalities are due to pilot error not engine or aircraft failures (yes the mechanical failure may be the first hole in the cheese - aka the swiss cheese human factor model)

These engines rotate at high speed and a blade separation will cause an engine failure. This is typically known as a frag. The F-14 had its engines well apart from each other to prevent fratricide. Years ago an engine frag took out the hydraulic systems on a DC-10... the designers having been thoughtful enough to route the hydraulic lines right next to the rear engine.

dbc7772020 5 tuntia sitten
Good explanation. Some points, 1) the engines are at climb thrust and don’t increase through 10,000’. The nose just lowers and airspeed accelerates. 2) there was most likely a relief pilot on board in the jumpseat due to the length of flying time to HNL. That is very beneficial as they can monitor, verify the problem and correct checklist is being done properly, and to coordinate with the flight attendants, passenger, company dispatch, and anyone else as appropriate. Tremendous job by pilots and everyone!

I was a passenger in the first row of a small plane that experienced an engine failure like this in the last second before takeoff, when you can just feel the plane starting to lift. There was a loud bang, and those sitting behind me reported seeing flames shoot out of the engine. The pilots reacted immediately to "slam on the brakes" and bring us to a halt on the runway. Good thing, too... we were taking off from Lexington, KY where there is notoriously a huge ravine at the end of the runways (where another flight ended in tragedy a few years later). I don't know exactly how far we were from the end when we stopped, but the answer is probably "too close for comfort." Since it was a tiny plane (maybe 15 rows total), the pilot walked back into the cabin once the plane was stopped to talk to us instead of making an intercom announcement. Being in the front row, I could see that he was a bit pale and shaken up. The pilots performed admirably, but they're human, and that was scary. We taxied back to the terminal and deplaned. Someone gave us a highly technical explanation of what happened: "The engine took a crap in the gearbox." I think basically it was like what happened to the Denver flight: some piece of metal sheared off and tore up the engine from the inside. Remaining flights out of Lexington were all booked, so the airline sent me in a taxi to Louisville to catch the first in a series of flights that would get me home to Houston later in the day. The whole thing had shaken me a bit, but I was so tired that I think I actually slept through one of the subsequent take-offs.

Boeing wide body twin engine aircraft use Left/Right nomenclature.for the engines. If a pilot transitions from a B747 to a B777 and the right engine fails you don't want the pilot calling out #2 engine failure. On the B747 that would be on the Left wing causing the new B777 pilot to depress the wrong rudder. By using Left/Right engine nomenclature it avoids the possiblity of the pilot depressing the wrong rudder pedal. Also in the USA the major airlines have done away with any memory items/actions during a non-normal procedure. Boeing and Airbus have dropped the word Emergency from all of their checklists in favor of the use of NON-Normal for any system failure onboard the aircraft.

Choosing to turn away from the failed engine has nothing to do with turn performance Joe. It’s all made on autopilot as we all know. It was probably giving them the shortest track miles to the runway, or a lower MSA...etc. Also, when the pilot “sped up” to 300 knots as you say, I don’t believe the engine has also “spooled up” because as we all know in climb thrust is constant and speed is controlled by “pitch” through the THS (trimmable horizontal stabilizer). This is a classic uncontained engine failure and fire that is so rare to happen yet it happened. Reasons range from a manufacturing defect to maintenance issues. I’m sure you do remember United 232 DC 10 catastrophic engine failure and how it caused all hydraulic systems failure. I’m glad no one is hurt. All the best. A320 Captain.

’m a United A&P mechanic with nearly 35 years of experience working on these aircraft and engines and I’m not going to speculate on what caused this because it could have been any number of things. Sorry Captain Joe, but you’re wrong. This was NOT an uncontained engine failure. Apart from the inlet, fan and thrust reverser cowlings blowing off, the engine casing itself was intact. If it was an uncontained engine failure, the ENTIRE engine would have broken apart. It’s no doubt that the United pilots handled the situation very professionally, which is what they are trained to do. It’s also why they make such exorbitant salaries. But aside from that, they know very little about how an aircraft engine works. All Captain Joe is doing is showboating and spreading false information. He needs to take his foot out of his mouth and let the FAA conduct it’s investigation. I
