Plane Engine Failed And Exploded, Debris Rained Down Across An Entire State

Soon after the departure, the plane's right engine started to fail. Luckily, no injuries were reported on all 231 passengers and 10 crew members.

On Saturday, after the engine of a United Airlines plane overhead burst into flames, chunks of metal debris rained down on a suburb area in the United States.

Specifically, flight 328 took off from the Denver International Airport around noon to Honolulu. Soon after the departure, the right engine started to fail, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Aboard the plane were 231 passengers and 10 crew members, who issued a mayday call to air traffic controllers but safely returned to the airport at 1:30, reported CNN. No injuries were reported on board.

However, streets were close on Saturday as the police in Broomfield were locating and removing the debris lying across different neighborhoods. The Broomfield PD shared photos of the incident through their Twitter account, showing terrifying scenes of the wreckage. A piece of the plane engine that’s as large as an inflatable pool was chilling on a house’s front yard.

According to a witness of the incident, he was playing with his children outside when they heard the explosion and saw the plane flying overhead. They hid as parts of the plane’s engine crashed to the ground. The witness said:

“We saw it go over, we heard the big explosion, we looked up, there was black smoke in the sky. Debris started raining down, which you know, sort of looked like it was floating down and not very heavy, but actually now looking at it, it’s giant metal pieces all over the place.”

United Airlines released a statement about the incident with information already covered when the accident happened. National Transportation Safety Board is taking over the investigation and the FAA will assist the case.
