Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - "United 328 Heavy — Mayday Mayday ... Denver departure. United 328 Heavy Mayday. Aircraft just experienced engine failure — need to turn immediately," the air traffic audio from the plane rang out on Saturday.
The PW4000 engine has 22 blades, investigators said, one of which was found lodged inside the jet engine's containment ring. Another was found in a soccer field in Broomfield, Colorado.
One of the blades in the plane's right engine broke free at the hub, likely hitting another that was broken mid-span, investigators said Monday. The former shows damage "consistent with metal fatigue," NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said.
The flight fuselage also had damage to a non-critical composite piece designed to make the plane more aerodynamic, Sumwalt said.
On the plane, passengers saw the engine completely stripped of its outer casing, according to video from passenger Travis Loock.
The mood was tense, Loock told CNN, but everyone was "very calm" on board as the pilot came on to say they would be landing in four minutes.
"My daughter was sitting on the window and ... I was just like, 'don't look, like let's let's close it up and let's just pray,'" passenger Brenda Dohn said.
None of the passengers were injured. Nor were residents around Broomfield from the falling debris that stretched a mile.
"We dispatched police officers and within minutes we actually were on scene of some of these homes, and we actually saw some of these large pieces of debris," Broomfield Police spokesperson Rachel Welte told reporters on Saturday. — Courtesy photo
