Witness describes narrow escape from falling airplane debris

A United Airlines flight was forced to return to Denver International Airport after it suffered an engine failure shortly after takeoff, sending aircraft debris raining down on soccer fields, homes and yards in a Denver suburb. CNN's Pamela Brown spoke to witness, Kirby Klements, who walked outside to find a large piece of the plane had fallen right in front of his house.

    Greetings ... Feb ‘21 UAL 238 Uncontained Engine Failure…. CNN had early interview with an expert who explained what may have happened. The fellow was an older gentleman who is a pilot AND a lawyer specializing in aviation industry issues. Needless to say that the interview was skewed such that an average viewer might never want to fly again. Please forward the two videos attached to this comment to anyone you know that would like to hear ‘the rest of the story’ about how this incident was handled from the perspective of a well respected aviator and a 777 pilot. Juan Browne is very good at explaining things in terms most people can understand. Wellll……,… Boeing stock will undoubtedly take an undeserved hit, as well as more bad PR. However, seems that this and other similar incidents are really a problem that belongs on Pratt-Whitney’s shoulders. They are going to have to figure out the cause of fan blade failure and perhaps take a look at how well their engines age as hours pile up on older aircraft. Will probably result in inspection interval being shortened for these engines. Good that a great many 777’s and other heavy weight aircraft using these engines are currently sidelined due to Pandemic, so any mandated inspections should be easily accommodated. Some airlines were planning on retiring 777 aircraft in next few years anyway. Interesting interpretations follow based upon Juan’s comments…. 2nd Video discusses ETOPS decision, with an opinion that if an engine failure like that which occurred over Denver had happened between West Coast and Hawaii that resulted in a windmilling fan and shaking/wobbling engine may have necessitated flying slower (and lower) so engine would not eventually shear bolts and fall off the wing. Apparently plenty fuel to do so, since ETOPS would require planning before takeoff for a cabin decompression emergency where an aircraft would need to be flying around 10,000’ anyway. (In my mind, a pilot in that situation might need to be rather creative, perhaps, with his aviating to keep off balance windmilling fan/engine harmonics at a minimum, yet fly stable and conserve fuel.) Juan also pointed out that incident investigators may also have an opportunity to discover if fire suppression systems on aircraft will still work effectively with an engine cowling that is entirely missing. Juan seems to think that the fire that was visible from passenger cabin was from leaking oil or hydraulic fluid.

    I experienced the same thing some 12 years ago on a flight from Purto Rico to Miami. Looking out the window I saw the left engine on fire burning bright in the night sky and burning smell filled the cabin. The lady next to me was so frightened she grab my hand and didn't let go until the plane landed. All passengers got off, waited at Miami airport and were told to get back on board some 3 hours later, to the same plane stated by the airline to have been repaired! Fortunately the fight was aborted last minute for unknown safety reason and the airline housed all passengers in the airport hotel for the night.

    Biden's administration has just been caught emailing the WHO about recalibrating the parameters in which they count Covid deaths. The new parameters would cause Covid case numbers & deaths to drop dramatically when implemented. So I guess this was the "plan" Biden was referring to, the one that would be implemented his first day in office. LOL I guess he's learning from the unemployment department, they say unemployment numbers are falling, but they are just taking people who qualify for unemployment off the list, by changing the parameters in which they're counted. This is the definition of corruption, not to mention that Biden's financial advisors are Black Rock executives, Black Rock has a 16 billion dollar investment with the Saudi government for the oil pipeline they are building there, this is why Biden's first order of business was to kill the Keystone XL pipeline, Black Rock's investment increased by 24% the very day that Biden signed that executive order, killing hundreds of thousands of American jobs. Biden and his close friends stand to profit BILLIONS of dollars just from this one investment. Biden has already sent a letter to the Saudi government sayin he is in full support of the building of the pipeline. Biden is as corrupt as they come, he couldn't even wait 1 single day to screw over Americans, kill they're jobs and then personally profit from they're destruction. He and his friends will become even more wealthy then they were before. You people can't even pay your rent or feed your kids and Biden is profiting off your heads.
