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

    As many people are saying how “lucky” this was, the engines are literally designed to handle this sort of failure, and the remaining engine is designed to provide sufficient power to climb out (if needed) and circle around for landing on one engine.

    A very good video analysis that confirms my initial thinking when this incident happened. However I would like to point out a few other matters you did not cover; #1 There was a 2nd engine fan blade that had been sheered off at 50% next to the original missing fan blade. #2 Once the Engine cowling was removed due to the initial damage, the fire extinguishers won't have a solid effect on the engine fire. #3 The pilots never dumped fuel, so they landed very heavy. Scrap pile for this plane I think or maybe as a stationary training station.

    What could have happened if the crew decided to jettison some fuel to reduce weight prior landing? Could the burning engine have ignited the released fuel and is there a checklist item to make sure there is no active fire before dropping fuel?

    The only decision I do not understand (also after similar emergency landings): Why don't they get stairs to the runway and evacuate the aircraft immediately on the runway? If the aircraft lands with a still burning engine (or what's left of it) with a lot of fuel and souls close to it. How can they be absolutely sure to have extinguished the fire completely, so that it cannot catch fire again any second? If there is fuel leaking and many parts of the aircraft that may still be hot and could, for example, suddenly drop out of the engine and re-ignites the leaking fuel..

    Great and detailed explanation by Capt. Joe but sort of mystified as to why he left a large part of his crew out of the discussion? Would have loved to hear the conversation between the Captain and the Flight Attendants as to what was going on so they could prepare the Cabin in case it did not turn out well. It turned out well thanks to the skill of the flight crew. Maybe that conversation was not recorded but it should have been. The pilots and flight attendants are very well trained at United. Not sure who Capt. Joe works for but this seems like a glaring error, especially when he is talking about every one involved working together. Maybe Capt. Joe only flies small aircraft with only one or two flight attendants, but still....

    No mention of fuel dumping. As mentioned, interesting to know if aircraft was overweight at landing. Denver to Hawaii is about 2,900 nm. 777-200 max range is about 5,100 nm. Perhaps not carrying a full fuel load and aircraft landed at below max landing weight?

    Thanks for the good analysis. One correction though. It was a myth started in WWII to turn away from the dead engine. No on is taught that anymore. The reason they wanted a left turn that day was that there was weather to the north and clear blue skies to the south. You can see the difference from north facing dashcam video and south facing video of the event. (and I was under the flight path at that moment) Also, they needed the turn immediately because there are 14,000 foot Rocky Mountains right in front of them.
