Parts of an Boeing 777-200 plane of United Airlines bound for Hawaii fell from sky across several neighborhoods in Colorado’s Denver after the aircraft’s engine exploded and suffered “heavy failure”. The flight was carrying 231 passengers and 10 crew members.
The pilot was later able to successfully make an emergency landing at the Denver International Airport thus everyone on board was safe.
Images posted by police in Broomfield, Colorado appeared to show plane debris on the ground, including an engine cowling. Police tape was used to cordon off the debris.
