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

Datum objavljivanja: 20. Vel 2021.
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. 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Made in America.

  • If that engine broke free from the wing it would be over

  • Remember Sally landing on the Hudson River well that’s nothing compare to This pilot flying a plane with an engine on fire and everyone made out safe . Jesus lord . He’s a real héroe

  • Whats happening this is the 2nd time. The last time the exact same thing happen in united airlines 1175

  • Not rare, definitely odd

  • Was there a possibility the engine could break off and damage the wing?

  • These engines are failing every year and nothing being done about it

  • definetly wont effect boeings safety record. the PW4000 has a failure rate of about 1 in 1,000,000 flight hours. These things happen.

  • UHM..A I NEVER SAID WHERE THE PLANES or engines were made. this is what happens when a tard tries to read something and fails cause of lack of comprehension. no understanding of words and no trolling skills...........

  • Fly Airbus 😉

  • Wait, One of my sons engines failed?

  • Rare or not - another desaster for Boeing!

    • @luckyowl249 no the responsável is united or pw

    • @Mauro Silva I know but Boeing is responsible as user!

    • But boeing doesn't make the engines

  • Boeing much like the state of Texas has gotten to a point where everything is so deregulated......they stopped caring about your safety. It’s disgusting.

    • Boeing doesn't make the engines

  • (479) 777 Outsourcing - HRdown

  • They keep talking very rare United had the same thing happen on a flight from san Francisco to Hawaii 3 years

  • In fairness to Boeing, , the problems with the Pratt and Whitney engine failure is not their fault, but it is possible the P&W suffered from the same "bean counters in charge" disease, that can destroy the very reason a company is successful. A company is not successful because of the money. Money is what you get when you are successful. P&W was successful because it made good aircraft engines. Boeing was successful because it made good airplanes. Boeing made good airplanes because it had excellent core of experienced aircraft designers. But these designers are expensive to maintain at decent American salaries that allow them to buy quality homes in places like Marine Hills in Federal Way. So the bean counters and Milo Minderbinders took over and outsourced the 777 structural design effort to Japanese companies and bought out the experienced American engineers with retirement packages. Come along the CFM Leap engines, and Boeing had a core of experienced cubical desk jockeys with engineering degrees, which is not the same as having a core of experienced aircraft structural designers. Because they didn't get to design the wingbox and body sections of the 777 while being mentored by the best group of aircraft engineering mentors on the Planet Earth. That is why the 737 Max is a disaster and why those of you who bought Boeing stock at 440 per share are now seeing it at $212 per share.

  • Tony Black is black lol

  • Boeing duct tape should do it

  • Unless it happens over ocean hours from land

  • this is why i won't ride plane im just gonna create my own raft

  • Most of the people bashing Boeing here probably don’t even have a passport much less the intuition to know that this is mainly Pratt and Whitney’s issue.

  • Republicans deregulations!

  • 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.

  • It's the engine that failed folks. Stage 1 fan blades take a beating. The dovetail on the rotor or hub could have been worn enough to where one blade loosens up at the root in the dovetail and that's it. All 38 stage 1 blades huck.

  • Many times already the engine fire balls, why don't we put water spray sensor by the engine simply, Mayday is not a good day bros.🏊‍♀️🏊‍♀️🤽‍♂️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤽‍♀️

  • 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).

  • Boeing quality

  • 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

  • The fact the engine stayed intact and remained on the wing is amazing. Glad no one was hurt

  • I will be flying on Boeing 777s. They're really tough planes.

  • Made in USA 😂

  • Good thing it failed over Denver instead of over the ocean to Honolulu

  • Amazing how often Boeing manages to have "very rare" disasters

  • 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.

  • Nowadays, every disease has something with four letters: - Do you really have NTSB issues , you look pretty normal otherwise.

  • Travel safe with us "You always come down" Fly by Teif (Theearthisflat).

  • 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.

  • resilient = spin

  • Ohh again Boeing 777, so 777 are not a lucky numbers MUSLIMS : 😡😡😡😡

  • 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.

  • CODE BROWN! ATTENTION ALL PASSENGERS PLEASE GO TO CODE BROWN!

  • Wearing a mask outside and away from anyone else.

  • Nothing to worry about... as long as it happens on takeoff and there's an airport nearby to return to...

    • The Boeing 777 has ETOPS certification and can therefore fly on one engine for 180 minutes, more than enough to reach any diversion airport

  • Boeing needs the Lord.

  • Gremlins did it.

  • Thst guy is right.. this is not on Boeing. Pratt & Whitney manufacture the engines. Maybe United didn't service properly.

  • Passenger : "The engine is on fire!" Star Wars fan : "Now THIS is pod racing!"

  • Better switch back to 4 engine aircrafts!

    • Thanks for the replies. Just worried about engine failures for twins. 👍

    • @Skeptic Bear No need to go back to 4 engines. The 777 can fly for extended time, land, and even take off with a single engine. Google ETOPS

    • @Skeptic Bear one thing search ETOPS

    • @Mauro Silva At the middle of cruising above the ocean. And both engines fail. And there's no nearby airport. What will happen? 🤔 Then the passengers will swim to their destinations. I wonder if all airlines know that.

    • Planes can fly with 1 and 0 engines

  • Glad it wasn't over the Pacific.

    • They likely would have been fine to reach an airfield. The 777 is designed for sustained flight on one engine (it is part of it's ETOPS certification).

  • 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.

  • Boeing doesn’t make the engines.... People that stupid, blaming Boeing

  • My dad flew in that same day...

  • 🔥😱😱😱🔥🤦🏻‍♂️

  • These were the companies making engines for the warplanes of America that bombed helpless civilians all over the middle-east -- May Allah down the airplanes of America -- they have caused so much misery to so many around the world All these people saying that they are praying for the safety of the passengers -- what about the safety of all the people who were bombed by U.S warplanes and drones, now their technology being used to bomb the starving kids in Yemen And don't forget Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and all the other cities of wooden structures that were firebombed with their inhabitants Americans, do you have any shyness !? at all...

    • You know what those things work both ways also your saying that innocent people deserve to die because there american?

  • Why is the FAA grounding the Triple 7 it was one incident that could have been the result of Maintenance..everyone jumps the Gun..do you people know how to think..the investigation is not even over and you News pundits think you have the answer.

  • 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 they were over the ocean they would of been fucked

  • I hope boeing 777 blown engine see how plane lands

  • "Incredibly rare" Not any more!

    • When did rare mean impossible😂

    • Still incredibly rare, given how many flights happen yearly without experiencing a UEE

  • What if this happened over the ocean ? I like how there acting like this was all 🍑 ey. They were on there way to Hawaii, what would happen then ? “ The pilots Made a crash landing 500 miles outside of Hawaii, they followed protocol, this was a success “

  • BLAME EA PATTEN IN MANCHESTER CT

  • also the so called expert that said fan blade failure MOST MORONIC STATEMENT EVER MADE. even an idiot knows vapors go in outer cowling and blew off exterior shell.

  • the truth is each time you go up you are playing russian roulette and I tried to explain it to someone but it went in one ear and out the other. look at those other ones taking off months back and kept crashing one after the other. keep in mind they cannot ship in enough asians fast enough to construct the planes and keep them in order--untill that happens you have same old thing "car must be made not on monday nor on friday since car door will have beer bottle inside"

    • Are you actually using the max to base your statement😂

  • UNITED AIRLINES IS REQUESTED TO KINDLY BUY BETTER ENGINES FOR AEROPLANE'S .

  • "please dont lose any confidence in flying--this is perfect example how safe you are". you better hope its a major job interview to get me up in a plane. If I was meant to fly I would have born with jet engines. That explosion was caused since in the forepart of the engines unburned fuel vapors violated the outer part of the engine that only have straight air--blowing off all the cowling. "mayday mayday need to come back in for a crashing". I will take my chances any-day on the ground. I dont care WHAT they say about odds.

  • hate 2 break the news 2 u guys but...a person i know told me her stepfather worked for boing as a mechanic and told them that the reason he dont clock in to work is because boing pays him a salary for keeping his mouth shut. he just gets up and goes to whataburger every morning and waits on that settlement check once a week. from boing. the settlement check is for him keeping his mouth shut about the one that went down fully loaded with people. the same numbered one that was supposed to be sent to him to pull a part from they didnt have a replacement of. and itd take 3 weeks to have it made and shipped. the company toldem SIGN THE DAMNED PAPER to release it back into the air. when it was never in his custody. so he signed the paper and that plane WENT DOWN. so he toldem he wants A WEEKLY CHECK FOR LIFE else he will spout off to the press. he went on saying that the planes arent really fixed they just inspect them and if theres an oil change or a part missing they write it down but it never gets worked on cause theres not many employees CAPABLE of fixing a plane only inspecting it. and its a waste of time waiting for a plane to be on the ground being worked on when it could be in the air making money. and if can fly then send it up................................... no matter what.........

    • Thanks for the bs essay....Btw the fact you put boing not boeing is one of the reason I know all this is lies.

  • Hujowo ale stabilnie

  • Lion Air pilots would just make the plane Plummet into a Field

  • These planes can still fly with one engine for a while. That’s the beauty of these planes

    • They just can't fly at full cruising altitude on one engine. All planes are engineered to fly and safely land with only one engine and all pilots train on simulators for it.

  • Always wondered what was inside a plane engine. Plain old cardboard apparently.

  • Thanks God it happened not far from the airport. Can you imagine if the engine blow up in Middle of the ocean. Where can the pilot find nearby airport?

    • @Naura Sal No politics, just the facts. The 777 has ETOPS (Extended Twin engine Operation Performance Standard) Certification. Meaning it is designed to fly for extended periods, land, and take off with one engine. The accident did not disable any critical systems. Over the Ocean they would have the capability to reach an airfield, even if it took a few hours (granted it would be unerving for the passengers). Per FAA rules, an aircraft could not do Trans-Pacific flights without ETOPS certification. I have over 30 years of engineering experience, most of it in Aerospace.

    • @adamf663 I said Thanks God, it happened soon after the take off. If the engine blown in the middle of the ocean... It will be a disaster cause it will be difficult to find the nearest airport. Don't politicize my comment.

    • @Naura Sal so? it was over land when the engine blew. If it was over the ocean, the plane would have landed at the nearest airport.

    • @adamf663 that plane is going to Hawaii. And Hawaii is in the middle of the ocean.

    • At low altitude, they can fly pretty much indefinitely. There used to be an FAA rule that transocean flights had to be flown with at least a tri-jet aircraft.

  • Imagine wanting to take a vacation to Hawaii then the engine goes in flames

  • Standing outside wearing a mask.

  • Boeing must have a paid all actors in this video upfront

    • After the 737 Max lawsuits I don't think Boeing has any money left to pay any actors anything

    • What?

  • if it's boeing _ ____ ____

  • Reporter: This incident could enhance Boeing's safety records. Boeing: Come on, man. Don't make things worse than they already are.

  • Hey, that's an old video...

  • Boeing again.Soon nobody Will buy this scrap

    • @Ethan's Aviation and in addition to that the engines performed perfectly under the conditions it was in. It contained all fragmentation all the way down to safety.

    • The a380 had it's engine explode to so what's your point. Also boeing and airbus don't make engines.

  • I keep seeing this "very rare" phenomena on 777s...

  • The reporter mentions "contained failure" but shouldn't that be "uncontained"? Bits of the engine fell off...

    • Parts of the cowling came off, not the engine. The parts that came off were the inlet, fan cowl, and thrust reverser. Those are Boeing parts mounted on the Pratt and Whitney engine. With the possible exception of fan blade parts, the engine remained intact. The fancase and core did not disintegrate. The fire looked like it was in the remains of the thrust reverser (which is Boeing hardware attached to the engine).

    • Uncontained engine failure for certain! There is a portion of a fanblade missing, thus the resulting vibration of the engine on its pylon impacting stability of the entire aircraft. This same type failure has occurred 3 times in the pass 3 years..., twice on United Airlines aircrafts, and most recently on a Japan airline B777 this past December. Japan has now grounded B777s with these engine types.

  • Boeing go buncrupt

  • This is a maintenance issue and nothing more. I bet they find a leftover maintenance tool or a loose bolt went into the engine. Maybe even a bird strike. This has nothing to do with Boeing besides how structurally sound those airplanes are.

    • @Aeromarmot or 25 years of normal usage or improper maintenance. Metal doesnt last forever and that's why companies are supposed to test for fatigue. I was just taking a guess before the NTSB said metal fatigue. Lots of poorly maintained airplanes out there by their owners.

    • NTSB said preliminary indication is metal fatigue. That points towards design or manufacturing. If tied to maintenance there may be a factor in NDT (Non Destructive Test) inspections. This does not sound like a FOD (Foreign Object Debris) issue.

    • Could be a fan blade manufacturing issue, or something was missed in the design regarding fatigue, or a combination of items. There are plenty of ways to cause this outside of maintenance.

  • GE or Rolls or PW?

  • 777is it a Dreamliner sh*t

  • Boeing? Is everything allrite??

  • pilots are trained for these kinds of scenarios

  • Well it really can't be that rare, considering the redeuced number of planes that are flying and the 'newness' of the 777 plane.

    • Actually the 777 is not new. It was first delivered in 1995.

  • Denzel was flying. God bless America!

  • 1:50 hes voice sound´s like D. Trump.

  • Hope everyone is safe

  • With the rash of bad luck Boeing has had lately, I'm surprised anyone will voluntarily get on a Boeing made plane. Luckily they left Denver and not L.A. might have ended up swimming.

  • Guy says reliable so the company stock doesn’t fall.

  • They were lucky it did not happen half way to Hawaii. The engine was still on fire all the way through landing.

    • Actually they likely would have been fine. The fire looked to be residual oil or fuel (pilot can cut fuel line, which he likely did). The 777 is designed to fly and land on one engine for an extended period (ETOPs Certification). No aircraft systems seemed damaged to prevent extended flight.

  • Minimum wage in algeria 105 $ per month

  • The turbine is still spinning in its bearings. Makes me thing this could have been a bird strike. There are pelicans up at 10,000 ft. I seen then while that high in my hangglider. A pelican is a bloody big thing to hit at 600klms/hr

  • Can you imagine the applause when that landed.?😩🙏🏾

  • Soon it’s gonna be obligatory to take life insurance before fly in a Boeing

    • This happened on a A 380 a few years ago only jet that is much newer than this Triple 7 the crew also did an outstanding job there were no deaths and maybe no injuries might have been minor injuries that I can't remember. Jets are man-made obviously occasionally anything made by man can and will fail. The Triple 7 is a very very safe jet
