Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
On the 20th of February 2021, a United Boeing 777-200, registration N772UA performing flight UA-328 from Denver,CO to Honolulu,HI (USA) with 231 passengers and 10 crew, was in the initial climb out of Denver's runway 25 when the right hand engine's (PW4077) inlet separated associated with the failure of the engine. The crew declared Mayday reporting an engine failure. The aircraft stopped the climb at about 13000 feet, the crew requested to return to Denver after running the checklists. ATC offered any runway, they would make it happen. The aircraft returned to Denver for a safe landing on runway 26 about 23 minutes after departure. The aircraft stopped on the runway for a check by emergency services. Emergency services advised of an active fire within the right hand engine and extinguished the fire a few minutes later. The aircraft was subsequently towed off the runway to a remote parking stand, where passengers disembarked and were bussed to the terminal. There were no injuries.
The engine inlet fell into the neighbourhood of Broomfield,CO, located about 16nm west of Denver near 13th and Elmwood Street, the debris also struck through the roof of an adjacent house.
Broomfield police reported that although debris impacted the neighbourhood and damaged a number of homes, there were no injuries on the ground. The debris field expands over a nautical mile.
Ground observers reported hearing the sound of an explosion like bang, smoke and saw the debris falling down. The aircraft continued flying.
Watch the video to learn more about what happened!
Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
Wishing you all the best!
Your "Captain" Joe

  • Excellent video well done!

  • I feel sorry for the person that had to clean all of the passengers seats 😳

  • What would have geen the outcome if this happened half way to Hawaii over the Pacific?

  • Wunderbar

  • Captain smurf

  • Amazing video,thank you! Here more info about this...It seems that the belly was damaged too brleast.info/rock/video/ronbqryIyJt8qIE. All the best from Australia!

  • thank u 4 ur ez english ! from jpn

  • Good information.

  • Great video. Good work :)

  • Love this video fantastic

  • Good

  • UEE? You mean liberation

  • 1st timer here new subscriber excellent video thank you

  • The pilot is so incompetent that to his mayday the controller replies : what ? ... especially knowing it was an "emergency" and not a "mayday"

  • Can we rely on the Americans when it comes to airplanes these days?

  • 47 hour flight to Honolulu??? Really?

  • Great Video good job!

  • well done, thank you for clear and professional analysis!

  • Always a little nervous about flying, but the Crew's and the ATC's professionalism always reassures me!

  • Awesome analysis. Thank you!

  • thank you sir... well said....

  • And this is why planes have gone from for engines to two.

  • Did he say a 47 hour flight?

  • Cheers! Great info!

  • More NDT bottom line!

  • white balance set wrong ?

  • Isn't there a risk that while they're running through the lengthy checklist, the fire will weaken structural members in the wing, and it fails? How bad does a fire have to be for the crew to abandon the checklist and try to land immediately? What if they were losing consciousness? Glad they all made it in this case!

  • Great explanation!! Thanks Capt.

  • Perfect explanation Captin 👨🏻‍✈️🙏

  • Hey Joe, was wondering if you can make a video about the whole maintenance portion of airlines and cargo carriers. I have always been amazed by aircrafts and want to know some of the behind the scenes stuff!

  • Stick actuators are funny

  • I will know the whole story when it appears on the Smithonian's Channels' "Air Disasters".

  • Some lady almost got sucked out the plane in a similar engine failure. Broke the window.

  • Saw this on news as it was happening. So glad no one was injured and what an amazing job everyone involved did.

  • I'd call this fate telling me "You really shouldn't go to Hawaii".

  • It's annoying the time stamp in the top left is covered. eg 10:18

  • Excellent analysis and presentation of a complicated situation.

  • Great breakdown as usual. Thanks!

  • Future grand dad: Back when I was a lad, we had to drive our own cars... and planes had pilots.

  • I went boom And it not a good thing normally

  • I can't imagine a better real time breakdown and explanation of what was going on. Bravo, sir!

  • Used to live in Broomfield... As an optic tech; glad i missed that event. Quit flying before that after 20 yrs....

  • 5:13 It might also be because of fire. To keep the fire burning away from the fuselage just in case...

  • Very Happy everyone was safe.

  • I enjoyed the video. Nice and informative. I’ve never had any kind of an emergency as a flight instructor or an ATP level pilot. It’s nice to see how such a situation is handled.

  • Little JB weld and a nut on the fan blade and Bob won't go to Hawaii.

  • See FlyWithGarrett, this is how you talk about an aviation incident without making an ass of yourself and firebombing your own career.

  • First Officer Joe!!! Come on Joe there is nothing wrong with accepting what you are, being an FO is a good thing, every Captain was an FO first. Will you call yourself an Astronaut when/if you get to be a real Captain one day? 🙄

  • When they say they need to check checklists what exactly do they mean by that?

    • Checklists are basically instructions/directions for pilots to follow whether if it’s a normal flight, or a flight with an emergency. They are there to make sure pilots aren’t forgetting something important like the lights or raising or retracting the landing gear.

  • Fan blade flew, engine cowling couldn't hold the blown out blade. Boom. It shows the brilliance that goes into aircraft construction that a failure like this happens and the jets still under complete control and can land on one engine.

  • What would have changed in the procedure had the aircraft been in the middle of the Pacific when the engine blew out?


  • What a great explanation !

  • 47 hours flight?

  • Superb ATC Controller, and Pilots.

  • Thanks for the details .

  • Whats happening this is the 2nd time. The last time the exact same thing happen in united airlines 1175

  • Sounds like he said a 47 hour flight to Hawaii but I know he said for a 7 hour flight.

  • > TFW Americans even circumcise their jet engines

  • Rumor is the passengers were watching “Airplane”...

  • A very refreshing change of pace from the general negativity of the past few months in particular; seeing a video like this explaining the procedures these pilots went through and praising them for an outstanding job well done is very nice. Shit happens, things undergo catastrophic failures from time to time. What matters is how those failures are handled, and in this case the failure was handled flawlessly by all parties involved. A very welcome dose of positivity around an otherwise very harrowing subject.

  • I’ll tell you what happened engine goes boom people go ahhh plane lands and passengers still go to Hawaii Honolulu. While people on ground get debris in there properties. Done boom enjoy your fucking day

  • Lucky she didn’t blow half way over the Pacific.

  • Excellent!

  • Good job! Just FYI, airliners don’t push the power further up to accelerate out of 10,000ft. They are already at climb power and just put the nose down to accelerate to a faster climb speed.

  • So everyone has reddit now. Thats Great

  • Bunch of bull crap the companies need to change parts after they reach so many hours. They get away with shit till the shit hits the fan.

  • You’re not a pilot you’re probably just a co-pilot

  • Excellent video

  • Great job, nice analysis!

  • Those pilots deserve a raise

  • I really enjoyed your candor on this matter. I was an emergency firefighter with the New Zealand Airforce and you are right its definitely a team effort, 10/10

  • Salute from a Harrier Jump Jet guy....... Friendly tone, clear insights, systemic review, inspiring approach. Thank you Capt Joe.

  • I was on the tower radio for USAIR in Dec 1987 in Philadelphia when Flt*225 a Boing 737_200 series PHYSICALLY lost an engine at about 5000ft during takeoff. The engine landed in Depford NJ. The Plane RTF without any injuries. What I learned is the engine broke loose from the rear mount and accelerated up over the wing because it was under takeoff power. The WHOLE engine went over the wing and lightly and clipped the rudder. Could of been horrible but those Vietnam era pilots were well trained.

  • My brother is a United Airlines Captain and this video shows why he is deservedly proud of his airline. Captain Joe did a fine job highlighting the professionalism of this cockpit and cabin crew, and the air traffic control team supporting them during this inflight emergency.

  • Missed cracked fan blade, same thing happened to SW air in 2017.

  • Thanks for the breakdown.

  • Stop speeding

  • Why they didn't evacuate if there was fire? Why did the engine explode?

  • I don't know about any checklist.. I would just check to see if i dropped some mud!

  • Great video my friend! Thank you

  • 1,000 comedians out of work and we get stuck with you losers.

  • Why wasn't it a 'Pan Pan' call rather than a 'Mayday'?

  • People underestimate the power of communication

  • The real takeaway, B777 can really land with only one engine, even with full passengers on board.

  • Gotta give love to the pilots man 💪🏼 nerves of steel!

  • They Didn't say how many people on board or how much fuel

  • 47 hours???????????????

  • Bright Side Watching This Video: write that down WRITE THAT DOWN

  • Counterfeit parts from China got into the inventory...

  • Why is it always so hard to understand what comes through the radio?

  • The 694 thumbs down is the E-tardy human beings that don't respect this Captain explanations. They are either Aliens invasion on earth or just a bunch of you know what...

  • *Engine parts fall on yard* “Ay bro watch yo jet”

  • FYI: Broomfield. Bloomfield is in Connecticut. Video is great.

  • I stand by what I said earlier and if any I get any ridicule, it will be reported. You calling yourself "Captain" Joe is false advertising and falsely representing your current position as a pilot. You wear the three stripes of a First Officer. One of your compatriots who has another channel, not sure if you even know of him, Mentour Pilot IS in fact a bona fide four stripe captain of his airline, on Boeing 737s if I recall correctly. I've reported your channel for the false information in your channel name.


  • I'll Walk .

  • Why is your voice talk like that.?

  • So glad this didn't happen while over the ocean!

  • This guy makes airplanes and being a pilot interesting as heck. I always feel like wanting to become a pilot after watching his videos lol
