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

    I can tell you exactly which checklist we would use. The one that popped on the center crt. The most urgent checklist auto populates folllowed by the less urgent checklist. By the way the one that they first used was the engine failure,severe damage checklist. This guy will make a fine training center pilot. Line pilot? Who knows?

    First Officer Joe, the last thing we need in our industry is another pilot speculating on an incident and presenting misinformation. Here are a of the few things you got wrong. 1. Climb thrust after takeoff on a 777, especially out of Denver would be a decrease from a takeoff power, not be an increase. The power reduction takes place at approximately 800 AGL not at 12,500. Hence, your speculation on the nature failure is uninformed. 2. The appropriate checklist and the one used on this flight was the Engine Severe Damage or Separation checklist (L/R). This checklist is specifically designed to isolate the engine, so your speculation about hydraulic failures is also uniformed. Speaking of the engines, they are not numbered 1 and 2, but rather L and R. Now if you can tell us why they are not numbered, you might actually garner some respect from those of us who actually fly the B777 or maybe demonstrate that you have some knowledge of the aircraft. 3. Turning into a bad engine would not be consideration on this flight given their airspeed and energy state at the time of the turn. In fact, on a 777 it would never be a consideration except on a V1 cut and only if you allowed your airspeed to decay below V2. I could go on, but you get my point. Professional pilots do not speculate on the nature of accidents/incidents and they certainly don't do it for self promotion or profit. We allow the actual aviation safety professionals, in this case the NTSB, to do their job and make the determination as to what happened and why. Then we take that information and use it to make our industry safer. All you have done here is provide false information and profited off of an unfortunate event.

    Well done video Captain Joe. Hats off to ATC and the United crew for doing exceptional work getting that a/c on the deck with no loss of life. Things could have gone catastrophic at any time. I worked on the flightline for years...seen my share of crippled a/c and hard landings. This crew and ATC did an amazing job

    That plane shouldn't be allowed to use same strip.. That strip should be out of service once they learned that last plane using it has problems.. Hehehe there should right away service people checking it for debris or so.. Hehehe remember Concord.. We were to cocky.. I knew right away there was tire blown for some reasons & punctured fuel tanks.. 737 max the first went down.. Hehehe i said right away engineering design flaws.. They should keep fuselage but redesign wings with replacement of engine positioning or smaller engines.. Hehehe no other options.. Computer can't compensate all the time..accordingly.. Hehehe just saying

    for the average person watching this video - the aircraft WILL CONTINUE flying safely with a single engine. in fact the aircraft will take off fully loaded with a single engine. the aircraft will fly indefinitely with a single engine. the aircraft cannot be put in service unless it will operate with a single engine. what you are watching is THE REASON they put 2 engines on the aircraft.

    This could have ended up like Southwest incident with cowls hitting the windshield. People could have died on board and on the ground, greatly a miracle no one was hurt ! Second time for United now with a fan blade out, this does not look good with their inspection standards on the blade.

    I am amazed that abbreviations are permitted on a checklist. Surely in any emergency, it is possible a non-pilot may be executing these instructions? Also, when people are leaning towards panic, the LAST thing your brain wants to do is remember so random acronym or abbreviation. What the hell is A/T? IMHO, very stupid.
