WATCH: United Airlines flight suffers engine failure, engine parts fall near Denver

A Boeing jet scattered engine debris over a residential area near Denver in the United States after one of its engines failed on take-off.

The Boeing 777-200 had 231 passengers and 10 crew on board.

It was able to make a safe landing at Denver airport, Colorado about 20 minutes after take-off.




No injuries were reported.

The United Airlines plane was bound for Honolulu, Hawaii.

Flight 328 suffered a failure in its right-hand engine, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said.



The pilots made a mayday call, telling air traffic controllers “we’ve experienced engine failure,” CNN reported citing communication records of air traffic control communications with Flight 328.

Broomfield police urged residents not to touch or move the debris.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will be carrying out an investigation.
