Default Impressive B777 Engine Failure

United Airlines flight suffers engine failure, scatters debris over Colorado before emergency landing

A flight in the United States bound for Honolulu has landed safely in Denver despite one of its engines failing, causing it to scatter debris over a nearby Colorado town.

United Airlines said there were no reported injuries on Flight 328, which had 231 passengers and 10 crew on board.

It landed at 1:30pm local time on Saturday, 30 minutes after take-off.

Police in Broomfield posted photos of pieces of debris from the Boeing 777-200 aircraft, but there were no immediate reports of any injuries on the ground.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) would investigate.

The images posted by the police department appeared to show large pieces of debris, including an engine casing from the plane, scattered outside a home and on a playing field.
