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

    It was interesting to see the plane fly around to what looked like the furthest runway. I'm not sure it was only checklist as the reason for going that far around. The approach to Denver airport 26 that the pilot took is mostly over fields. All the other approaches have much, much higher population densities. Kudos to the pilot for taking the route in that also considered the lowest potential for ground injury if anything were to get much worse on approach.

    The engine shut down checklist is a read from a quick reference card (QRC) NOT from memory. Actions like these require the other pilot to confirm correct lever or switch is being moved, not just a sequence run from memory. The flying pilot would also guard the adjacent controls for "good engine" with hand to prevent pilot running checklist from potentially shutting down wrong motor.

    This was a good explanation until the end "this is why we need a two man cockpit". This is 2021. Women have been pilots for a very long time now. Unlearned comments such as these is why women make up 5% of all pilots, and continues to decrease as we have moved forward in most all other industries except aviation.

    A seven hours flight time probably does not carry much fuel for a overweight landing. That's why they did not perform jettison fuel...

    After my wife heard about this she said that she didn't want to fly for a while. I told her that this makes me even more confident in air travel. After all a 2 engine plane had one blow apart while still climbing. A time when it still needed power. Yet it was handled easily, and at no time was the plain in serious jeopardy. To me this shows how well trained everyone involved is.

Thats why we brief on every Takeoff, plan for an engine failure so there are no surprises. Every landing brief a Go Around that way again, No surprises. Look forward to following you.

      Not a pilot but I do operate ground radios, You usually get your ear worked in to the missing pieces of info, you learn what words go where and can fill them in with context of what you did hear. After a few hours of it your brain just kinda clicks into gear and it just sounds like normal speech.
