Default Aircraft Engine Failure over Denver.

Some amazing pictures coming out of A Boeing 777 engine cowl on someone’s front lawn after a United Airlines Boeing 777 suffered engine failure on a flight to Honolulu.

Also some pics of the plane in flight with a clearly badly damaged engine.

Thankfully looks like no injuries.

Just caught it on a TV news channel. Not sure why the engine was still there as they are designed to shear and clearly that jet would have been better off without it after such a failure. Sadly, some crews on a flight deck don,t cope too well with an engine down or out and the recent loss of a 737 in Indonesia looks likely to be a case in point. But well done to the crew in this case of a 777 for getting it safely down.

I wondered about that as well - tho’ probably best for those on the ground that the engine remained intact.

The picture of the outer cowling sitting on a front lawn was sobering. Lucky it was not a whole engine.

Yes, thankfully no one’s hurt. Would that have been a Rolls Royce or GE unit?

Boeing, boing, boing! The more I read about their manufacturing methods the more I worry! It seems that when they were doing the "pickle fork" inspections the investigating technicians have found a number of bits of "manufacturing debris" in the voids! Anything rolling around next to wiring or hydraulic systems is a worry!

It had the Pratt & Whitney engine option. Not a good day for P & W as a 747 using its engines also suffered an engine failure on the same day. Click

I wonder if it’s had a bird strike and lost a blade as the Inlet cowl has failed completely resulting in lipskin and forward bulkhead landing in someone’s garden.

You can see split/damage on the lipskin assembly with could be from a blade off the resulting air pressure probably cause the break up of the remaining structure.

I wonder if the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) will want to see it.
One of my favourite series, Air Crash Investigation.
