Passengers on a United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Honolulu experienced a scare in the air.

Go watch the interview with the pilot. This aviation "expert" they interviewed was not so much an expert. The pilot fought the plane the whole time.

Planes can glide for miles without there engine's. If the pilot turns the engine off the plane doesn't just drop to the ground, it just glides down slowly.

Typical inept reporting on an inflight emergency and basically worthless. There were about 340 people on this Boeing 777 who are alive today due solely to good fortune. They just happen to have three highly experienced aviators on that flight seated in the cockpit and it took all the experience and skill of all three acting as a highly coordinated team to regain command of that wounded airplane. They were also at 38 thousand feet only 40 minutes from Honolulu when that 35 pound piece of fan blade in the right engine shattered from metal fatigue. It tore about a thousand pound of material off the front off of the engine and none of it hit the tail assembly. The Captain in an interview said things were so bad in fighting the airplane that he thought it was all over for everyone. He was so convinced that they were going go in the water that he told the cabin crew to prepare the passengers for a ditching in the ocean. Simply put there is no better alternative than to have folks in the cockpit who know how to hand fly an airliner when all the computer assisted flight controls go hoofs up.

The aviation analyst in the clip, Peter Forman, says it was not a big deal. I just saw an extended interview with the captain of this flight who said the exact opposite.

I’m surprised they haven’t fixed the fan blade problem,the cause of this incident was a broken fan blade and now in Denver,it’s one that came off completely

Who is the manufacturer of this particular plane? How old is it?
Zach Jones

This isn't really the fault of the plane manufacturer (Boeing I think) since they didn't make the engine, but rather the engine manufacturer (Pratt and Whitney). Metal Fatigue caused one of the turbine fan blades (hollow core titanium alloy blades) to break. The broken blade caused part of the blade behind it to break off as well. These things will shred the inner workings of the engine but shouldn't pierce the kevlar and titanium body. What caused the cowling to come off was the blade or part of the blade was spit out the front of the engine, where it shredded the inlet rim. After that, the slipstream of a plane going 300+ knots quickly removed the rest of the cowling

Interesting 🤔. Same aircraft engine, same right engine side, same fan blade issue, same crowding falling off, same time of year almost 3 years to the day, same destination of Honolulu airport? What’s the maintenance of this plane does it go through Honolulu? There’s some type of connection here IMO.

I wouldn't call this an engine failure. This was merely caused by someone not properly securing the engine cover (cowling.) Apparently this was NOT engine or mechanical failure.

Luckily the jet engine didn't fail until the flight was ending. A water landing is common. Now if the engine failed in the middle of the flight while over the ocean then it's impossible to fly only on 1 engine still unless the plane has has 4 engines.

Well from general observation the blades on that engine look pretty rough. Hard to tell if it was a broken blade or the cowling came loose and broke the blades. Jet turbines don’t work well with broken blades. So ironic with the American flight out of Denver. God bless these heroic pilots. 🦋

You got to checking the cowling, it's so important! Not really, i's just the covering for the outside of the engine, it's main purpose is to smooth airflow to increase fuel efficiency. It would be about the same as the hood of car, it covers the engine but is not needed to drive the car.

A water landing in the ocean 99.9% of times means a plane crashing into the ocean. You can land a plane in calm waters from a lake, river or a bay. Still with almost perfect water conditions the plane can be destroyed if the landing isn't almost perfect.

That "brown part" Is a Kevlar type containment ring which did it's job! Similar damage to yesterday's Denver incident. With one other perfectly working engine why was a ditching even mentioned. Also masks or life jackets would not be needed. Rare incident, pilots well trained for it. No danger whatsoever apart for falling debris on populated areas.

The statement that pilots are NOT trained for this is incorrect. Pilots spend hours in simulator training going over multiple scenarios such as but not limited to one engine operation.
Dave Holcomb
Dave Holcomb 13 күн мурун
As a former piston commercial pilot for a small coal company and a CFII for multi-engine planes, pilots are certainly trained and re-trained for single engine operation in the initial practical test plus if you fly corporate you will hopefully be doing recurrent training. It’s all drill, drill, drill for when this happens. I have lost an engine coming out of 19,000’ on descent with a Cessna 421B Golden Eagle. You are first trained to of course fly the plane but you and your co-pilot if you have one are constantly monitoring engine gauges too to look for issues that might develop into problems before they happen. Those United pilots did what they were trained for and my hat is off to them. They brought their people home. We will all be looking for the NTSB report on this. The P&W engine has a bulletproof record of reliability. This generation power plant has changes for fuel economy, noise and probably weight. Any time the original equation of a system is changed there can be unintended consequences. It can be a number of conditions that caused this to happen, i.e., an ingestion of foreign material, a system or part failure, it can even be a metallurgical problem intrinsically or in design. The people at NTSB will take their time and figure this out. Again, hats off to the pilots and the whole crew for a job well done!

@Exoress Delivers Hi there, in our discussion of this incident I recommend the reading of an update by a YT channel commercial airline pilot calked “blancolirio”. It is long and technical but gives you a threshold understanding of the many facets of operations of this type. Still donot know why the blade failure but raises the possible issue of past hard landings may be a factor. (Had to correct some spelling.)
Dave Holcomb
Dave Holcomb 13 күн мурун
@Exoress Delivers Might be a different problem this time. Sometimes incidents are one of a kind especially if there isn’t conclusive findings. I flew as co-pilot on a King Air 300 too. It’s a turboprop. If there is ice or snow we had a shield to energize to shield the turbine fan when that happened. They learned this from finding unusual fan-blade wear which could create blade failure. Sometimes some conditions are not identified right away. Thanks for your interest. They will look closely at history of flight and maintenance. Hopefully they find it soon.

Before Covid-19, were about 10 million commercial flights per year in the USA alone. Although on a given flight engine failure is highly improbable, with such a huge number of flights, some airplane returns back to the airport with a failed engine about once a week, tough it is usually somewhat less dramatic than this. Pilots definitely train for engine failure, and have standard procedures and checklists for dealing with the situation.
