  4. Ron Goes

    Which is actually not the case. Airline customers are offered a choice of engine options depending on what they think will offer the best cost/benefit ratio. So your speculation is entirely wrong.

    Not good job United, Good job Boeing...United was responsible for maintenance on that engine. At least that is my thoughts!

    Great analysis of a catastrophic engine failure and hats off to all the personnel who demonstrated very competent and steady nerves as they brought this serious incident to a safe ending without any casualties or significant injuries.

  15. QuasiRandomViewer

    QuasiRandomViewer9 kun oldin

    10:35 "The single-engine departure procedure for runway 25 has you turn to the left. So that's good. You're not turning into the dead engine. You're turning away from the dead engine." Naively, I would have thought that turning into the dead engine would have been easier (given the asymmetric thrust) and thus safer, and that for a given airspeed, the engine on the inside of a turn would have been exposed to slightly less wind, perhaps preventing additional pieces from being torn off. What is the rationale for the advantage of turning away? Is it, perhaps, that the engine on the inside of a turn is exposed to more turbulent air?

  16. QuasiRandomViewer

    QuasiRandomViewer2 kun oldin

    In Juan's 2021-03-02 interview -- UAL#1175 Fan Blade Out Event -- Capt. Behnam described making a right turn into final for Honolulu's 8R. That would have been a turn into his dead engine, but that aspect was not discussed. I'm glad it wasn't an issue on that flight.

  17. Ethan's Aviation

    Ethan's Aviation6 kun oldin

    One reason is that it's harder to end the turn with a dead engine

  18. Robert Gantry

    Robert Gantry9 kun oldin

    Interesting. I _did_ see the passenger's video footage last week, but I was unaware that it had just happened. I hadn't heard the radio traffic until now, so thanks for that.

    JB good reporting on UAL 328. Have you got any info on the AAL 2292 Capt. Reporting a UFO to ATC while at cruise alt over NM? Something like 'long cylindrical object just went over us really fast'. AAL admits it was their radio tx but says talk to FBI for further info. So might be tough to get info but hope you're working on it.

  21. BigPants Bob Nuggets

    Question: are passengers moved away from seats inline with an unstable engine? Parts may dislodge and enter the cabin.

  22. Ethan's Aviation

    Ethan's Aviation6 kun oldin

    You can't always move people, even if they did it wouldn't make a difference as it would only send parts in to the fuselage when it first fails

    It's hard to trust mere humans with maintaining engines like that, let alone designing them. But what else can we do?

  28. Ethan's Aviation

    Ethan's Aviation6 kun oldin

    We build everything even a machine could have mistakes

  29. Monte Brown

    Monte Brown9 kun oldin

    The crew did an absolutely perfect execution of engine out procedure at take off. One passenger that was on board has video on Tiktok of the engine starting to come apart before rotation! The engine is loosing pieces and you can still see runway under the aircraft! Pilot was probably pulling up the gear at that moment because a few seconds later you can see the end of the runway. If the pilot would have tried to abort the take off it would have been a disaster. Engine couldn't have failed at a more critical time. Crew handled the situation perfectly.

  30. Jeff Sullivan

    And this is why you want to fly on an aircraft crewed by pilots that are trained to western standards.

    Transcription error all over the internet on this. I award points to Denver Departure. When the Mayday was announced, he did not reply "Somebody stepped on you". He said "say again, can you read that again?" That's what my old USAF ears hear.

  34. Tzadik Vanderhoof

    Tzadik Vanderhoof10 kun oldin

    Can you do a video on how ATC handles the NON emergency aircraft around the airport in a situation like this?

  35. Abe Lincoln

    Abe Lincoln10 kun oldin

    Well trained pilots easily dealt with the emergency. Not so with the 737 Max crashes ... where poorly trained pilots did not know how to properly deal with a runaway trim emergency on a 737 shortly after take off. And yet Boeing got the blame for two poorly trained aircrew. The dealt flight crew from the 737 Max crashes ... would have also crashed a 737 Jurassic, Classic, or NG suffering a runaway trim emergency in a 737 ... shortly after take off. The 737 Max should have never been grounded. Boeing didn't make the flight sensors nor does Boeing do airline maintenance or pilot training. The was nothing wrong with the MCAS system. Not fool proof but nothing wrong with it. It did it's job. The 737 Max only needed a MCAS software upgrade to make it FOOL PROOF. All Airlines flying the 737 need to ensure their pilots are properly trained.

    Not understanding why procedure calls for turning AWAY from dead engine. The remaining left engine would naturally yaw the aircraft to the right, why not utilize that force?

  42. Ethan's Aviation

    Ethan's Aviation5 kun oldin

    @Tim Allix Wasn't being rude, all I said is you can do some research into the other reasons.

  43. Tim Allix

    Tim Allix5 kun oldin

    @Ethan's Aviation If you really do know the answer, then drop the attitude and show your knowledge. We’re all here as a community of pilots, and I am sure there are others here who are asking the same question.

  44. Ethan's Aviation

    Ethan's Aviation5 kun oldin

    @Tim Allix Not lame, just one of many reasons, go do some research on it if you want more info.

  45. Tim Allix

    Tim Allix5 kun oldin

    @Ethan's Aviation That's a lame explanation

  46. Ethan's Aviation

    In WWII that would be counted as a "probable". Very glad no one was injured, very sorry the failure occurred. Determining the cause and whether any failure was due to offshore manufacturing (if any) will be interesting.

  69. Bob Bailey

    Bob Bailey11 kun oldin

    What you don't see is the effort behind the scenes by ATC to clear all other aircraft out of the way in order to give this aircraft the priority it deserves - it's quite a bit more complicated than you might think. I've been in that situation, I know

  70. Mark Gallagher

    Mark Gallagher11 kun oldin

    If you look one of the other videos from a passenger further forward, it must have been done with a newer iPhone, the FPS and image quality are high enough to stop or pause the video and see the two missing blades, the root separated blade and the trailing blade broken mid-span, jus like the other two failures, December 2020 and the 2018 HNL flight.

  71. Steve 100

    Steve 10011 kun oldin

    Thank you for the informative report as always. Most of the passengers aboard were probably not aware of the seriousness of this engine failure. The crew did a superb job ; as you said that's why they get the big bucks ! Glad no one on the ground got hurt either; pretty big pieces fell in that yard.

    So! Question here - Why are these engines failing - Back in the day when rolls royce engines were used on the 747 never had these problem fan blade failures...Something tells me that the engineer's have to go back and redesign these blades. I kinda get the feeling that either bad maintenance when a inspection is performed or bad parts that are still in the system where some one is passing these so called semi passable parts with out doing a full integral check of the blade in question meaning there could be dosen of flawed blade that are waiting to fail like this one did. The tv show 20/20 has done investigative reports on shoty practices of used parts being put back into service that have questionable paper work -???

    James Govett12 kun oldin

    It’s really great to have you explain in thoroughly understandable terms what and why this happened and all the associated procedures that were put into place during this emergency and from an experienced pilot of yourself, well done and thankyou, but it also shows what may have happened if the engine fan blade(s) and nacelle/cowling parts happened to explode apart on a different trajectory and damaged wing slats or fuselage, severed hydraulic/fuel lines etc which hypothetically could have happened also but the fact that it looks like it fell away from the aircraft structure and landed without any injuries is a good thing but looks like it easily could have gone the other way, you have a great channel, extremely interesting thank you, cheers from Melbourne, Australia.

    Do the 777 engines use jet fuel to hydraulically operate variable stator/guide vanes or bleed valves? If not, what do they use? Wondering if that could be the source of the fire

    Excellent presentation, as always, Juan. At about the 19 minute mark, you talked about taking the ILS in order to stabilize the approach and minimize the chance of a go-around This is key. As a pilot , you know how to land the aircraft. Do it. Make it as normal as possible Figure out what she will do, then take her to the runway (or field, if necessary) Don't be the guy who rolls his helicopter over because he's worried that he forgot to check the fuel cap.

    What if this engine would have exploded midway over the pacific? With that engine shaking on fire would they have needed to ditch it in the water. If so that's very scary thought.If it did go down in the pacific would it have been survivable. Floating rafts and life vest?

  107. Jim New

    Jim New12 kun oldin

    A lot of comments are, " why didn't they just get on the ground ASAP but they were taking their time and doing checklists etc. I was thinking this plane is full of fuel and probably loaded to the max. an plane like this has a max takeoff weight and a max landing weight which is considerably less than the takeoff weight. That's why they have to dump fuel before landing . Nothing was mentioned about dumping fuel. Was it because dumping fuel would be very dangerous since an engine was on fire?

    When I was a kid I think it was in the late fifties in the San Fernando Valley an engine fell off a jet and landed in a school yard. The whole area came out to look at it. I don't recall about the rest of the jet. But it was shocking even back then. Just looked it up and yes a mid air collision.

    Thanks Juan. Good report as always. As an aside, I had 5 engine failures in my 41 year career but only 1 was catastrophic - most of those happened before cell phones and the internet had been invented. So the bigger question - Did they get another plane for the trip to HNL before their duty time ran out? :-)

  123. J C

    J C12 kun oldin

    So here is the question.. had this failure occurred over the Pacific, halfway to Hawaii, could the vibration from the engine have caused the engine to fully separate from the wing, causing the plane to come down?

    Ok, this engine shouldn't have failed, but accepting that this might happen, being prepared and designing for survival is remarkable. Well done to the designers and pilots for making this a survivable incident.

  126. Euclidus Chaumeau

    Euclidus Chaumeau12 kun oldin

    They had a turbulence alert for 14K to 22K feet when they took off. The engine blew at 13K feet, so is there any chance that rotor winds from mountain effect turbulence pushed too much air into the engine and caused a compressor stall, which might have triggered the turbine disc failure(s)? That was my first thought.
