I love how people feel the need to compare every aircraft accident to 9/11.

One question: are those flames supposed to be there? Does that mean that the engine was still getting fuel? If it was, is that a normal procedure?

PS: as you probably can guess, I know nothing about these things, so sorry if it's a silly question.

The fuel, oil, or hydraulic lines may have been damaged by whatever caused the initial event. That's around the combustion chamber area, so it's going to be extremely hot, and stay that way for awhile. Hydraulic fluid especially, is extremely flammable.

Judging by the amount of flame though, I'd say a fuel line was ruptured, and is spraying fuel into the engine, and it's igniting.

No you don't. What are lying for at least I was truthful.

If you watch the video you can see the first disc has some blades that are out of alignment. My guess is that it experienced a disc failure somewhere in the compressor section. This would certainly cause heavy vibrations to the point of sheading the cowling.

I am impressed with the crew's performance though you can hear their concern in their voices. BRAVO ZULU United 328!

Looks like the guy with the yard ornament will be needing a new truck.

So, interesting bit of trivia, on Feb 13, 2018 United 1175 going from San Francisco to Honolulu threw a blade through the cowling, and had the #2 engine come apart shortly before landing. That was N773UA. Yesterday was N772UA.


So what's the betting all crew are suddenly sick when N771UA comes up?

It's called sarcasm. You should try learning it some day.

It's also utterly ridiculous to try to compare any accident to what happened that day. But don't let that stop you.

Several fan blades failed. It appears that one to two completely separated, and a third may have broken. This caused damage to the inlet cowling, which then failed due to aerodynamic stress.

Scary stuff to be sure!!

I don't worry about the engine failure much at all, but the thing I do worry about with something like this is debris flying up into the horizontal stabilizer. Fortunately the engine on the 777 is well forward on the wing, but still the vortex behind the wing can easily throw debris all over the place after the airfoil passes over it.

EAD issued requiring immediate inspection of all PW4000 engines on 777s.

Fitting actually considering everything that happened on 911
was utterly ridiculous and unnecessary.

According to the NTSB update, the aircraft itself sustained minor damage. Two fan blades were found broken, one near the root, one at mid-span. One blade was found embedded in the containment ring, and all the blades showed damage to the tips and leading edges.

I have seen both turbine and fan blades come a part...It most likely had a fan blade failure, which is kind of rare unless maintenance was done incorrectly.

Alright i feel bad. I apologize it hasn't been a great day. But
thank God no one was hurt.

It happens to all of us. No harm, no foul. Hopefully tomorrow is better.

It was very lucky no one was hurt. There's another video of a piece landing and it bounces several feet into the air.

Pretty good impact below the wing on the fuselage.
