Denver, United States:
Massive debris rained down from the sky over the US city of Denver on Saturday as a plane with engine failure was forced to return to the city’s airport.
Among the images posted on social media was an image of a large circular portion of the United Airlines plane standing in a yard in Broomfield, Colorado, a suburb of Denver.
The flight to Honolulu, Hawaii, “returned to Denver International Airport and landed safely on Saturday after a right engine failure occurred shortly after takeoff,” the Aviation Administration said on Twitter.
Kirby Klements, on whose lawn the large circular piece of debris landed, told CNN that “it was a little overwhelming”.
“It landed square on my truck and fell off,” he said, reporting that a separate large piece of rubble had poked a five-foot hole in a neighbor’s roof.
The FAA said it was “aware of reports of debris near the aircraft’s trajectory”.
United Airlines tweeted that “no injuries have been reported on board”.
