A United Airlines flight bound for Hawaii was forced to make an emergency landing shortly after taking off from Denver after suffering major damage to one of its engines 15,000ft above ground and dropping huge pieces of debris over a neighborhood in Colorado as dramatic audio from the mayday call reveals the pilot asking air traffic control to immediately turn the aircraft around.
Video recorded by passengers aboard Flight UA328, which was carrying 231 travelers and 10 crew members, showed the engine on fire shortly after takeoff from Denver.
There were no reported injuries either on board or on the ground. One homeowner in the Denver suburb of Broomfield, Colorado said they were making a sandwich in their kitchen when debris crashed through their roof and landed just two feet away.
