Airplane Failure!

Airplane Failure!

Collin Cardot

In the past week, average news watchers have been shocked to see footage of an inflight engine failure of a United Airlines flight. Video of the turbine was captured and posted to Twitter and showed one of the engines burning and falling apart.

Thankfully, the pilot was warned of this and made an emergency landing in Denver, which ultimately derailed the flight to Honolulu. Debris fell and destroyed homes in Broomfield, Colorado. The flight landed safely back at the Denver airport and no one has been reported hurt from both the flight nor the debris. As someone who has ridden on a plane a few times recently, this has not helped my somewhat intense fear of flying!
