'Very rare': Aviation expert John Nance describes engine failure on Boeing 777-200 near Denver

Shocking video shows an engine of a Boeing 777-200 in flames while in the air. United Airlines Flight 328 was on its way from Denver to Honolulu on Saturday when an engine failed shortly after takeoff.

The plane was able to land safely back in Denver and no one on board or on the ground was injured. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating. https://www.king5.com/article/tech/science/aerospace/very-rare-aviation-expert-john-nance-describes-engine-failure-on-boeing-777-200-near-denver/281-dae9a0c4-e4a2-423c-b0c1-e1c6911ce5c9

The 777 is probably one of the safest planes out there with few, if any, incidents recorded. Boeing doesn't make the engines, but they make one hell of an airplane! Good job by the crew, especially rhe cabin crew keeping everyone calm.

Omg. Imagine looking out the window and seeing that. Whoever took control of the cabin to stop a panic should be praised because I would be saying my prayers for death

I keep seeing this "very rare" phenomena on 777s...
The fact the engine stayed intact and remained on the wing is amazing. Glad no one was hurt
The engine fans are hollow and show cracking. The FAA stepping up inspections is inadequate.

Usually with a burning engine the fire can spread to the wing and compromise the integrity of flight control, and could have been worse. The cheers of the occupants are just a small token of what could have happened. Hug or say hello to the person next to you daily. be grateful.

I must say, Boeing did a great job designing their pylons and anchoring structures considering the massive amount of vibrations it supported during this engine failure

Due to the initial damage noticed on the low compressor blades,its highly likely the turbine sucked something up from the runway.

Gold Star to the Pilot 🌟. This makes me think of all the Army Air Corp pilots bringing their bombers back to England bases. With shot up wings, shot and killed crew, pieces of tail missing.... This took bravery and a very cool head. Wonder if this pilot came from military service. A cool pilot like Scully over the Hudson. 👍♥️🇺🇲

📌 If i remember this right, in my opinion this reminds me of Air France's A380 emergency landing to Goose Bay airport in Canada with their one engine failed and parts fall off [maybe try to compare it to be honest, it looks like similar but different depends on their location]

People need to realize how *HUGE* the 777 engines are. The video doesnt do it justice and it looks fairly small, when in fact, someone who is 6'1 can easily do jumping jacks in the inlet

Очень повезло пассажирам, т.к. кусок двигателя мог оторваться и пробить фюзеляж самолета, разрушить часть крыла, вызвать неконтролируемый пожар. Убийственных сценарием было много, но повезло.

When you for from building your planes like mercedes and start building them like chevys. Woring about share prices vs safety. Hiring cheap labor go figure that's the american way now. Airbus has it's issues too but they are definitely better built. Bombardier is probably the best the new cs300 aka airbus 220 is a awesome plane.

777'nin çok güzel motor sesi vardır normalde son derece güvenli bir uçak ama pilot tek motor ile de inebilir.İrtifasının yüksek olması bu konuda avantajdır.Aynı durum stall olayında da avantajdır.Umarız böyle durumlar hiç olmaz.
Glad it wasn't over the Pacific.

Yes, airliners are designed with redundant systems to make them safer. That part worked. But this is NOT a demonstration of how safely this plane is manufactured and maintained. It is potentially pointing to a very serious lapse in manufacturing quality or inspection procedures (or both). Investigation should tell us more (despite the claims of the aviation expert that there's "nothing to see here")!

But seriously, the pilots and cabin crew did an AMAZING job. No passengers were injured, and the plane was landed safely. Don’t forget, if an engine does fail, as this one did, the plane should land safely. Boeing did a good job on this aircraft design.
And honestly, I figured Boeing stock would go down some. NOPE! That stock is still going up.

This is not rare. This is a new type of engine. It's rare when calculated over all modern jet engines, but not when calculated over the life of this new engine.

You can actually see how rare it is when you use the search bar and type engine fires on boing 777 flights.
They were lucky it did not happen half way to Hawaii. The engine was still on fire all the way through landing.
39 people dislike this video because they believe that this video is proof that planes are dangerous despite there being zero logic or reasoning behind that assumption (compared to almost all if not all other forms of travel).
They didn't even mention that the engines are not made by Boeing.
It is a marvel that nobody described a shear to the right. Stable aircraft.
