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

  • thanks for the awesome analysis!

  • I really love your channel and the videos you're doing, Joe, but I don't understand at all how you come to the conclusion at 10:40, I mean, that his voice is calm because the engine is secured and the only thing left is to communicate and land. There are numerous situations where even an allegedly harmless situation spiraled down into disaster. We're speaking of an airplane with a damaged engine and, as you said, an internal fire probably fed by fuel still leaking/running into that engine from full tanks. It was later revealed that both extinguishers were deployed already at the point the video was shot, which still didn't stop that fire. I wouldn't make such broad guesses from radio communications. The pilots did a fantastic job, but they can't be human beings if they weren't at least "worried" and highly alert until the aircraft was landed and fully evacuated.

  • Well the front fell off....

    • good job-as an A&P I could follow why it blew -piss poor inspection of #2 engine!

  • If you walk away from a landing , it's a good landing , and I feel very happy to hear how the passengers cheered

    • "Plan a flaps 15 landing" "Set Vref 15 or Vref Ice"


  • It’s a Boeing. Don’t go!

  • The talented saturday operationally mine because athlete postauricularly release absent a tired tuba. defective, strange cause

  • Now after that all those people can fly any plane and have a good chance that won’t happen ever again

  • I appreciate a lot your professional attitude! Big like!

  • do not know why more than 800 people dislike this video

  • Thank you Joe for the awesome analysis and explanation.

  • Maybe on of the best explanations on aviation matters I have seen in a very long time. Factual, no drama but clear cut. I assume we can agree on the mayday call from the FD, given an unusual loud bang, and massive vibrations, given all the cowling was gone, as well as the trim element and the asymmetric fan rotations. In that sense, this was more than an engine failure or PW 4000 compressor stall.

  • Truly excellent analysis, great video, thanks for your perspective! 🙂

  • Well done sir.. read Romans 10:5/10 🥺

  • Owner of the house: "Honey, I think this Ring size is too big"..

  • Imagine plane engine pieces fell in to your newly bought vehicle

  • I would be curious what happens to a pilot after an event like this? Do they just get right back in the cockpit and keep flying? Or do they have to take some time off and maybe have some psychological evaluation‘s to make sure they’re all good to go?

  • what happened? boeing's diversity hires continue catching up with them.

  • "Plan a flaps 15 landing" "Set Vref 15 or Vref Ice"

  • good job-as an A&P I could follow why it blew -piss poor inspection of #2 engine!

  • Thank God the Jet Engine was made by the Superior High Tech Jet Engineering Company Pratt & Whitney who Profected During World War II the Modern Turbine Jet Engines We Safely Enjoy on a Daily Basis! Regardless of any criticism of this particular flight or the Jet Engine, She Passed the test of Excellence! The 777 Boeing Jetliner and Her Passengers and Crew made it Home Safely! Which by the way is Pratt & Whitney's Montra for over a Hundred Years now! Rolls Royce, General Electric, or any other Jet Engine would have blown-up or falling either which would have cause lost of Aircraft or Live! The United Airlines 777 Boeing With its Pratt & Whitney Engines are Twenty- Five Years Old Flying Over Salty Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Oceans, and God only Knows what over the 25-Years what foreign Air Debris that wore down or off lear by lear of metal causing metal Fatigue on those Turbine Fan Blades! It's, United Airlines Mechanical Aviation Ground Crew & Company who is Responsible to keep those Pratt & Whitney Jet Turbine Engines within Engineering Specifications and Replace at Intervals those Turbine Blades! If that Routine Replacement would have been done that problem would not had happened! Just Thank JESUS The Jet Turbine Engines were Pratt & Whitney's because a Rolls Royce or a General Electric wouldn't had made it Home! Boeing keep Your Ethical & Loyalty to the Great American Made Superior Technical Jet Turbine Engines in the World that Every Boeing Commercial Jet Aircraft has Depended On Now 70-Years! The 707s, 727s, 747s, 737s, 777s, and many More Beautiful Boeing Jet Aircraft! Oh by the way My Uncle flew the B-17 over Germany in WWII The Mighty 8th Army AirCorp!

  • Engine Fire , Severe Damage or Seperation NNC

  • what happened to the passengers? did they just get on another plane and go to hawaii? i would probably take a break from flying after this experience.

  • United Preflight Checklist: Are you wearing pants? That’s it, and they only added this in 2005

  • We need a mechanics perspective

  • I know the people on board were freaked out. No way I’m flying immediately after that lol

  • "Honey, amazon shipped us the wrong 777 engine shroud again."

  • When and whereabouts would they have made a fuel dump?

  • suggestion: put side mirrors for plane. problem sloved!!! XD

  • Many thanks for the thorough explanation for this. So well done!

  • Amazing. Thank you, Captain Joe.

  • "Way to go boys and girls!" I had to laugh. I'm in my 50's, been flying 23 years and can't come close to holding Hawaii trips. No offense taken.

  • they did a very great job

  • Com pilots train this to death besides Fadec controls everything. This is why ETOPS is bullshit

  • Pratt & Whitney Dependable Engines! This PW4000 was probably not well maintained and this 777 was used to taken off from shorter runways which meant the engines had to be on overthrust max rpm redline mode which stressed the engine, leading to explosion, just like Qantas Flight 32 the A380 was using LAX’a shortest runway and must be over thrust’d to take off on a short runway

  • Engine : *fails Pilot: just like the simulation

  • Is it me, or do pratt and whitney engines suck?

  • Big ups to all aviation crew and ground crews bless you all!

  • that's not engine failure.. that's engine rupture

  • 3:56 who got scared

  • "You got a hole im your right wing" - Confucius

  • I’m so glad no one was injured. Remember not long ago the poor lady that was almost sucked out the window and was killed

  • I don't think I'm smart enough to understand everything he just said but ok I get it!😂

  • You're an idiot

  • Very good explanation, well done!

  • Wait i thought that Jeff Bezos was pushing to install fully Automated Alexis\Hal Co-Pilots and just take the human out of the Cockpit, and they will only fly AI passengers in Stimulated Situations and only when class action lawsuits have worked there way thru the Appeals Process through Executive Order and that will be likely a ten year appeals process, i can hear the cheering already you thought it would take 15 years, with new Procedures in Washington it getting down to only a Decade, let's book those flights now and hope for Favorable Court Decisions , yay Progress, by the Way this Pilot was Awesome, the whole Team is awesome

  • You,mentioned about possible single pilot scenario, what pencil pushing moron would ever consider that should be fired, considering the complexity of today aircraft. People life are more important than bottom line period. “Don’t make me angry, you won’t like me to get angry” aka The Hulk

  • Too clickbait-y. Big perceived negative bias from the title.

    • "United 328 engine failure. What checklists did the pilots use? Explain by captain joe." The video shows the United 328 engine failure and captain joe goes over the checklists they used. Where's the click bait?

  • Fantastic analysis on a real life incident 👏

  • Donnie Darko

  • That captain is the real hero!!!!

  • Agree with You, “2” pilots ALWAYS SAFER ! Now, the Engine was NOT 100% SECURE??? Why?

  • Very well explained.

  • Awesome analysis, could you do one on the recent crash in Indonesia, which crashed into the sea? I can't remember the flight number, but it was only a few weeks ago, and it was reported that there were issues with the Auto Throttle. At this stage, the cockpit voice recorder hasn't been found, only the data recorder. Cheers, David.

  • Very informative great job

  • yes Captain Joe you are right , constant training even in the simulator , so when the situation calls, it has become second nature for the pilots to act , I know as a pilot

  • Anyone else here from broomfield? (where the casings landed)

  • Best comment of all is we continue to need a two-person crew in an aircraft of this magnitude. So many things that can go wrong and so many issues when there is a problem.

  • No Mention of Trump supporters getting kicked off.

  • Awesome video!’

  • I think that Jet engine is hanging from a wing that is full to the top with Jet Fuel and as he said the engine is still receiving fuel and is on fire..now that makes for a real cliff hanger time.....we explode or we don't explode in a fire ball...WOW !...wonderful crew...front to back...

  • Excellent analysis, I have one question, Does Boing uses RR Engine or manufacture their own?

  • This was a false flag event. Jet engines have fire suppression sys in case of engine Failure. The wings hold ALL of the fuel so a fire there is never good. Also, how would the face cowling fall off intact without being shredded or at least BREAKING in half??? the cowling is riveted to the engine across the entire face, for that to happen it would have to shake all of the rivets loose and somehow come forward over the engine against the force of the Wind.... Doubtful. Seem more of a coded comms.. * Engine Failure on the Right Side. *

  • Excellent explanation about this accident, very clear and precise. Congratulations, Captain Joe.

  • How many souls on board. "We have 150 souls on board." How many gingers? "Approximately 17 of them, all of which are in the back of the plane." Are you including them in your souls report? "Negative, those are excluded so technically we have 167 'beings' on board but only 150 souls."

  • What if this happened over the Pacific? That scares me the most.

    • Look up ETOPS. In laymen's terms the planes can only fly routes that it is certified to be able to fly for the amount of time it takes to get to the nearest airport and land safely with one engine. Twin engine jets such as the 777 can fly almost 6 hours on a single engine. On a route to say Hawaii the flight time between a airport on the west coast and the islands of Hawaii are typically around 5-6 hours so at no point would the aircraft be more distance away from its nearest airport than the plane can safely fly on one engine. I hope that makes sense, I'm not the best at explaining stuff.

  • imagine if that had happened over the ocean

  • You have Colorado Springs as a backup airport!

  • I’ve seen a few aviation videos before, this one’s one of the best.

  • Imagine the stewardess running down the hall and yelling "WE ARE DOOM!!!" LMAO! Airplane movie flashbacks.

  • First, a small nit, Captain joe is really a first officer. A captain has 4 stripes on his shoulder bars, a first officer has 3. Having said that, as a retired United Captain and 9 years of experience on the 777, his analysis of the event is spot on. In emergency situations as a captain,you want to keep the big picture/ situational awareness so most likely once your assured the aircraft is not in immediate danger, you will turn the flying duties over to the first officer so you can coordinate with ATC and the cabin crew. The first priority would be to turn away from the Rocky Mountains and return to the airport. You don’t want to run into the side of a 14,000 ft mountain while running checklists. Then do your checklists to shutoff fuel and hydraulics to the engine. Most likely the aircraft was over weight for landing but I’d be surprised if the Captain with an engine still burning bothered with the overweight checklist as it basically says if you have time, dump fuel, if you don’t have time, land softly. An over weight landing isn’t a big deal as long as you land normally. All in all, the crew did an excellent job, it’s what we train for.

  • Amazing job on this video. Perfectly described. Thank you!

  • at 1:11 he says 47 hour flight to hawaii.. Really ???? Denver to hawaii is now a 47 hour flight?

    • @Nick Myron it took me a couple rewinds to finally catch what he really said, I also though he said 47 hour flight. I was like wait, do they have a lay over in Australia?

    • That's what I thought at first but what he really saying was "for the 7 hour flight"

  • Love your videos captain Joe, thank you.

  • Captain or FO?

  • I’m ATC myself. Outstanding breakdown.

  • Fantastic explaining. I really enjoyed that.

  • I have had a WHOLE bunch of button busters flying and after the first I learned to remain calm, #1 fly the airplane, it doesn't matter where you are in the pattern or commands by ATC, never stop flying the airplane.

  • 2:10... moderate turbulence. Yeah, that's called 'Saturday' at DEN.

  • #hj

  • Hear this, all peoples!

  • Heavy, funny they didn't ask to dump fuel before they landed, lucky they were pros and lucky it wasn't in a Denver snow storm.

  • Did they dump fuel? You'd think they should have to. No mention of that.

  • Basically THIS is why so many airlines specify ROLLS-ROYCE ENGINES!!!!!!!

  • I came here just after finding out that the M1 Abrams uses a turbine engine and most of the time uses jet fuel.

    • Gas turbines can run on a variety of fuels, including diesel. My ship used 4 gas turbines, LM-2500s, which are modified CF-6 engines found on 747, DC-10, and MD-11 aircraft, and 3 gas turbine generators. We would take aboard DFM, or Diesel Fuel, Marine. They could also run on JP-5 aircraft fuel. Modern aircraft don't typically run on high-octane avgas like planes did in times past.

  • Good thing I wasn’t on Twitter after this happened, because some really stupid stuff was going on there.

  • Now I see why airliners have podded engines instead of in wing roots like in the Comet.

  • Listening to the step by step procedures and calmness of the crew has further given some if us to fly again after the stories on the Max 787

  • Lol that was over my house

  • U have over a million subs and not a professional mic?

  • Why no shut off engine when fire?

  • Outstanding video!

  • I found this explanation by a pilot much more interesting than most reports of aviation mishaps. You can really understand what the pilots are doing in real time.

  • Thank you for an excellent explanation. It was important that you mentioned the plane was landing not just with one engine but now overweight.

  • Never heard of your channel before today. Wonderfully informative video. Thanks for explaining things in an understandable manner.

  • Great job explaining

  • The the Pilot voice became calmer, ATC voice became calmer too.

  • My uncle ran out of fuel when flying his plane, landed on a road, crashed against a power line pole, got out of the plane, stopped a taxi and went for lunch.

  • The way you explained this you made someone like me who doesn’t understand a thing about planes knew what happened

  • Lol I’m sitting on my couch tensed up watching this, gives me faith in the aviation industry 👌
