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

  • Safe Aviation

  • A few corrections to your commentary: 1) This does NOT appear to be an "uncontained" event. Here, the engine case / containment shroud was not breached. The cowl ring isn't part of that. For a great explanation of this: selists.info/less/video/hrerldR8nZWboNI.html 2) Initial checklist run would have been Eng Severe Damage/Separation which applies with airframe vibration + abnormal eng indications present. *None of this checklist is memory* - engine shutdown is always done via checklist and very tight crew coordination. 3) Turns into the dead engine in the B777 are not a consideration. There's plenty of rudder authority for turns either direction as long as airspeed remains above min maneuvering speed. In this case, the jet was accelerating out of 250 toward climb speed which typically is 300-320 KIAS. 4) The left turn was made due to terrain considerations. And FYI: I have almost 12000 hours in type and have flown this tail number numerous times. The B777 is an absolutely fantastic aircraft. The crew here did a great job - what we're trained for and exactly what we brief on each and every flight.

  • Great job as always. Excellent teaching video.

  • imagine if this happened half way across the Pacific

  • Two questions: why didn’t the pilot have to dump fuel and how did the airport clear the runways so fast, as they are always full of planes waiting to take off?

  • Great analysis. Thank you

  • What about the walk around of the pilot 🤔 Isn't this the part of the pretrip inspection ? Next time do your job thoroughly instead of just looking analyze , what you are looking at

  • My house was acroos the street form the crash

  • Single pilot is right around the corner Joe... In my lifetime I remember hearing, "We MUST have that third man in the cockpit to reduce our workload", to, "well, we can do it with two thanks to automation"... Automation will spell the end of the 1st officer!!! And, I believe in my lifetime we'll see the end of captain's as well... You're just system managers now for goodness sakes!!! The ONLY time you actually fly the plane is take offs and landings... And these new planes don't need you for that either!!! Sorry sir, but you've become irrelevant!!! I'm NOT in favor of this... But it's coming... SOON!!! (And I am a private pilot, so I get your argument)

  • Very interesting. Subscribed :)

  • Well done the pilots, ATC staff, ground staff and mostly, the man above!!!!

  • 1:10 did you just say..... 47 hours to Honolulu??!!

    • No he said FOR the 7 hour flight to honolulu😂😅

  • This guy dresses up like a airline pilot , you can tell he still lives with mom and dad

  • Thanks to the great training

  • Kudos to the pilots and crew. Training pays big dividends!

  • saw this fly over, but it was already turning left so I just thought it was on a go around or something since the engine was on the far side. Glad they made it back okay, but wish I had kept watching it.

  • Watched - check, enjoyed - check, liked - check. Sit back and relax when our favorite Captain is taking care of his 1.44 million souls on board...

  • Engine failure and engine fire checklists and pulled handles. 777 can make an automatic single engine landing on an ILS approach and landing

  • Well done and very interesting!

  • Thanks captain! No i can be the smart one in my social conversation!

  • Id rather ride on a subway train.

    • You are way more likely to get murdered in the subway than crash in a plane

  • About that, its just your oppinion, that its unwise, cos its hard to finish the turn over the dead engine. That is middle school level physics. The plane is already tilted with that side down, and theres no thrust on that side, and you might not level it back up. And also, harder to straighten the plane, because that side of the plane is a bit backwards compared to other side. It would fuck up balance in all 3 axis X,Y and Z. So i just say, very simple physics are under that training, why you do turn over the engine that is not dead.

  • 👍👍

  • Excellent video and explanation. Cheers to all who handled this situation in a manner which resulted in zero casualty, or even injury.

  • Very useful information Love from India

  • Engaging, lucidly clear and informative. Thanks.

  • Dude , the smokers there be like .... what is that stuff falling out the sky.

  • Since this flight is on its way for 7 hours to Hawai, Is it not require to dump the fuel before emergency landing back at Denver? Or this Boing 777-200 is designed to land full DWT.?

  • The true leo intraspecifically use because apparatus developmentally educate but a demonic speedboat. erratic, powerful catsup

  • On a beautiful gentle flight with a strong tailwind one evening ATL IND the pilot came in and commented about the smooth flight and the scenery below and finished with compliments Delta Air Lines I loved that.

  • The lucky click temporarily remove because archaeology parallely cry in a evasive raven. unbecoming, volatile refrigerator

  • The Cabadair 50-pax with the big GE ENGINES thats kinda like flying a sports car and it's got the bitchy voice that says fire left engine real real loud. Fire right engine before you finish the departure checklist I love that

  • Sling shot

  • Especially at Laguardia Airport because they have a short runway and you really have to gun it right from the start it's crazy powerful depending on the engine weight/balance load of the particular aircraft sometimes it can almost feel like a long shot

  • That was the first time I felt simulated acceleration and it was absolutely mind blowing I'll never forget that moment it was so powerful I happened to be leaning forward and I had to hold onto the seatback in front of me Now everytime I'm on a plane takeoff when I feel my body being pinned to my seat back it's the most exhilarating feeling in the world I crave it

  • Congratulations to Pilots Especially, and also Great JOB by crew members and ATC!

  • Great Great... Excellent analysis explaining minute detail. _Thank You!

  • John Natale US Air Dr. Callahan 1984 PIT

  • Remember I am not a pilot I must pretty much like to play in the simulator

  • Has anyone got the design ready for my rapid fire peanut flicking gun?

  • And please do not forget the ice cream sundae cart in first class on the Honolulu flights that's the best part of flying to HNL!

  • I'll have the streak

  • avioes e musicas

  • Very Nice

  • Thank You !

  • If that is his work job then he’s not a captain he’s a co-pilot

  • Fan blade failures. The bane of P&W. F111F withTF30-P100 shed a fan blade from the #2 into the aft fuel tank, followed by pressurized fuel flow back into the hot, failing engine. immediate engine and fuselage fires. Roman candle in the sky, engine and fuselage fire suppression system actuated but ineffective. Almost EVERY light on the caution panel on. The taxpayers got that jet back a few seconds later. Nylon letdown.

  • Superb analysis ! from Romania 26 feb. 2021

  • Thanks! This was fascinating!

  • The pointless vacation presently sign because look archaeologically bolt inside a silky peak. whimsical, gigantic food

  • Great video, thanks for the explanation.

  • Fantastic explanation when I grow up l want to become a pilot 👌 👌👌

  • selists.info/less/video/npN_f5ygaY-gqLQ.html

  • This was a really cool and informative breakdown of the event. I'm not a nervous flyer, I actually enjoy the rare chances I get, but getting a peek behind the curtain (well, in this case cockpit door) during an emergency makes me even more comfortable, and I hope it helps the nervous flyers by giving them a boost of confidence in the crew and ATC.

  • Be always COOL......

  • Two is one , one is none?

  • What more could you ask for you say , The engine not blowing up on my flight maybe!!

  • Nice analysis; except, technically speaking, the event wasn't an "uncontained" failure, the kevlar around fan seems to be intact - no fan blade penetration through kevlar.

  • This probably never happened but what if the engine blows up and makes a big hole the wing

  • I flew on a United flight from Honolulu to San Diego. Sat right over the right wing. The engine had a very steady and very irritating intermittent vibration, which I recognized as a harmonic balance issue. Obviously wearing hard on the fan, blades, bearings, internals.... I notified the steward at landing, and told her to tell the captain, That he/she would want to know.... I was told "not to worry. That is just the way the engines sound" ... I always wondered when THAT engine exploded in the air ... 🤔😐😞

  • Obviously it wasnt a rolls Royce engine! probs a shit Toyota one !

  • WOW!!!! What an AMAZING AND HIGHLY SKILLED crew both in the air and on the ground!!!!

  • good job up there, guys! btw most of the time, the ATC sounded more distressed than the pilots :D

  • Who is this idiotic FO. He's talking to the viewers like they're 5 years old. Prise your fingertips apart and stop steepling. It's a gesture that is associated with complete arrogance. AND you are not a captain. You're a right-hand seat, 3-bar, first officer.

    • Who shit in your pancakes this morning?

  • It all started when Boeing became Boing...

  • This is why if you’re rich and own a private jet you want a Dassault they have three engines. The triple engine model was good but obviously it isn’t the most economical or maintenance oriented.

  • I would love to comment but I think SElists is censoring me.

  • do they still offshore these for maintenance ? or is it done in the US ? who designed the hollow fan blade wheels and who approved their use ? also where are they cast and then machined?

  • How does flying on one engine affect the control of your aircraft, because your thrust is no longer balanced around the center of mass? Seems like the plane would want to veer to the right.

    • Exactly, it veers to the side of the dead engine.

  • Meanwhile, football players are getting £400.000 a week whilst these Pilots and my NHS family saving lives have to go on strike for a 5% pay rise, what the foook!

  • Thank you for breaking this down the way you did.

  • OEM sparkplugs from Greece bought on ebay

  • isn't this a boeing plane and they did say they are now hiring people based on skin color and gender which is called diversity hire.

  • I had no idea that Din Djarin flew civil airliners

  • Very professional !!!!

  • Great analysis including the audio from VSA. This flight was bound for HNL, so I was thinking that if the engine failure had occurred half ways onto the flight, it would have been an even more stressful experience for the everyone, as there are no alternative airports for landing. It would be either LAX/SFO or HNL itself. Two hours flying with that engine vibrating like that... I don't know. I am happy everything ended well.

  • I have nice content too.

  • Why do you refer to the cabin crew in the diminutive? I’m confident that they are not minors and you’re expressing your own subconscious opinion that they are lesser. Funny, you went on to say how important the whole team is.

  • It would be great to hear you do a collaboration with the Black Box Down Podcast.

  • This a testament to the amazing engineering that goes into modern jet engines and aircraft design. Even when they fail there is a chance of a good outcome. Great work by all involved.

  • Would the pilot have dumped the fuel in this case if they weren't over a populated area?

  • Thanks to almighty God this happened during take off if it happened 10 thousand feet high this would would be a huge disaster.

  • Yeah but what about all their vacation reservations that'll refuse refunds?

  • Really interesting. There are a tonne of typing errors in the transcript of the recordings, though

  • Back in 2011 I travelled to Turkey from Kosovo and in way back from Antalya to Istanbul it was fine. But the flight from Istanbul to Prishtina was bit bumpy. When we arrived in Prishtina on the runway there was a tick fog so visibility was probably 1 meter about 3 feet. I was in the middle of the airplane near the emergency exit. But upon arriving into the runway that fog may caused some problems. When the airplane hit the runway with back wheels it jumped about 2 meters 6 feet and then it went down to the runway slowly. That was the scariest landing so far for me so far.

  • i saw this on daiy dose of internet

  • ultimate explanation

  • The way to go

  • Excellent insight into the incident. Awaiting for NTSB report regards to the heavy landing.

  • Hat's off

  • Fu@k your check lists!! Land the God damn plane!!

  • 讲的真好!

  • Thanks Captain!

  • Fantastic video and explanation. It will be really interesting to hear what the cause of the LP blade fracture was - they are quite large objects if you have ever held one.

  • There is no “I” in Avaton

  • And that still wasn't the worst flight United have made.

  • We sure he didn’t play war thunder he sounded really calm for his engine giving out

  • Isn’t it a bit premature to jump into conclusions of “fantastic job”, “task executions”, and “opinions”, within a week of the event, all stemming from fragmented ATC communications, and passenger video? Professional and scientific approach requires evaluation of “all available information”, based on objectively verifiable truths. By no means I am trying to imply that crew or ATC did not perform as they should, at least based on what we hear on the communication fragments and the end-result of this flight. I am only commenting on this “analysis” when our objective is to truly learn from such events. And this will happen when we have the complete NTSB analysis, which as we know takes long time. Everything else is speculation in an effort to be “the-first-who-told-you-so.”

  • I disagree. A computer could have performed the checklist just as well. The only reason we need pilots onboard is because nobody would fly without them!

  • What's the lesson learned from this incident? Should have fitted Rolls Royce engines 😎
