"Bombardment" of the city with engine wreckage: an aircraft accident in the USA

66

In Bloomfield, Colorado (USA), wreckage from a burning engine of a passenger Boeing fell on private residential buildings. The emergency situation arose with a United Airlines liner flying 328 from Denver to Honolulu.


It is reported by the American television channel CNN.

The Boeing 777's right-hand engine caught fire just after the airliner took off at 12.49 local time yesterday. Some parts of the power unit fell off as a result of the accident and fell down on houses.

Aviation video:


At this time, there were 231 passengers on board. All of them survived, as the plane managed to make a successful landing at Denver airport about 20 minutes after the Bloomfield police informed about the "bombardment" of the town with engine debris. Everything went well thanks to the professional actions of the crew, who calmly and without panic requested an emergency landing and called rescue services. Whether there are any wounded among the passengers has not yet been reported.


It is known that no one was injured from the residents of the city where the engine parts fell. The police department asked them not to touch the found debris on their own, but to report them to the police.

    It's a miracle ... that they survived ... the casing was not secured?
    The motor did not burn, it just worked without shrouds ...

          Oh, and a sight! This is the first time I've seen this!
          Perhaps I am mistaken, but the probability of a fire, a big fire, or a burnt-out engine falling off (especially on landing) was probably.
          The passengers are VERY lucky.
          And the pilots are wonderful high-class professionals, who calmly landed the plane with full tanks on one engine with an emergency second in what condition is unknown.

            If I am not mistaken, then two years ago something similar happened on the A320 at the British: the engineers did not close the engine hood locks after service. But it wasn't as dramatic there.
            We assume the Lord has - after the situation, engine severe damage, began to develop, they unambiguously cut off the engine from the fuel intake .. in theory, all the most unpleasant has already happened.
            Well done, of course, 23 minutes for everything - competently and without fuss. Of course, the reasons for what happened are interesting.

      Worked ? what Have you seen the video? The remaining fuel burns out after the fire hydrants are closed. And already in the second (cold circuit). And spinning in an oncoming stream. It’s a miracle that the pylon didn’t vomit with the remains of the engine.

        Yes, of course, the remaining fuel burned out. Wrongly put it. He worked in the sense of spinning. Didn't jam. As for the scattered blades ... The blades could damage the fuselage ... Probably, we will soon find out the details, the plane is SEL!

        After the well-known disaster, when the engine vomited, due to a cracked pylon, on takeoff. And the plane crashed with a bunch of passengers (for a long time there was the worst plane crash in the United States) due to torn contours, that is, the wing mechanization simply left and the plane turned over (the pilots did not have time to understand that they were spinning due to non-metric mechanization) - all subsequent aircraft are being designed taking into account the separation of the engine at any stage of the flight, without catastrophic consequences.

      It's a little scary to fly on Boeing, if it's not an old 737.

      There is a TV program about the investigation of aviation accidents. There were such stories about this Boeing-737 that the hair was on end.
      What impressed me the most was not even Boeing's practice of casting a shadow over the fence and not recognizing its shoals, but the clumsy test methodology.
      For example, there have been repeated Bonga 737 crashes due to loss of control. Once a defect arose and eliminated itself in flight. Control system checks showed no malfunction. They took a long time to swim until one particularly talented researcher suggested testing the system not at ROOM temperature, as was usually done, but at -50, as in flight. At -50, one of the valves suddenly began to work in reverse mode.
      In fact, a normal engineer in this situation would start by familiarizing himself with the technical specifications for the components of the control system, assessing the adequacy of test methods, and only after that he proceeded to check the system's performance.

      This is an old three ax.

      Why is it terrible? They sat down quite casually. He can fly 1 minutes on 180 engine according to certification. After the taps were closed, if a big fire did not have time to flare up, then there is almost no risk.

      In fact, such an emergency is scary with 2 problems:
      - long reaction, residual flow or overflow of fuel, in general, if the engine flares up strongly and the wing begins to degrade. ...
      - rupture of important highways by fragments. But they are duplicated many times. It will spam the pilots with errors, but it’s unlikely that everything is important. There will be no explosive decompression, unless, of course, there the fan will cut through the case.

    According to DW, a similar situation occurred on the same day in the Netherlands. A Boeing 747-400F cargo plane was flying from Maastricht to New York when one of its four engines caught fire. Parts of it came off and fell to the ground, causing two injuries.

    An elderly woman was hospitalized with a head injury, and a child sustained burns while trying to lift a hot wreck of an engine. The plane was successfully landed in the Belgian city of Liege. Law enforcement agencies have found no connection between the incidents in the US and the Netherlands.

    United Airlines is suspending all of its Boeing 777s currently in service, powered by Pratt & Whitney 4000 series engines, after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has called for increased inspections. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said on Sunday that initial examination of the Pratt & Whitney PW4077 engine from United Airlines Flight 328 showed that two fan blades were broken and the remaining blades were damaged "at the ends and leading edges."
