Although there were no reported injuries or deaths during Saturday’s incident over Broomfield, Colorado, residents and passengers told ABC News they are still shaken up.
“It was more along the lines of, ‘Hey, is everything going to be OK?’ That’s not normal,” Brett Guy, who was a passenger aboard United Flight 328, told ABC News. “I didn’t know what to think.”
The Boeing 777-200’s right engine failed shortly after takeoff around 1 p.m. Saturday for a flight from Denver to Honolulu, the Federal Aviation Administration said. Parts of the engine began to strip off as it was engulfed in flames, and debris dropped in midair.
The engine debris, however, caused massive damage to homes and streets below. Huge parts of the plane, including the metal coverings, fell on roofs, sidewalks and trees.
