I guess the pieces were Re...United
Edit: Wow that was an incredibly cheap joke for an award, thank you!
God damnit lol
I would have kept that engine piece and mounted it on the wall if I were the homeowner who's house it landed on
Would make a really dope raised bed/edge of a jacuzzi too. Or maybe you could use it as a door frame hobbit stile.
What is that black part that is blown out?
Yesterday in the video, it seemed to be burning, yet I don't see how fuel gets to it. Because combustion should be on the smaller part (inside the engine), not at the external turbofan part. So I'm definitely missing something obvious here...
It appears on first look that a fan blade broke, which you can see on the engine in the lower part of the first picture. When this happens, the engine is unbalanced, and spinning at a high RPM, and now has a foreign object rattling around in there. With those conditions, fuel lines, combustion chambers, etc could become damaged, which could also ignite some part of the engine itself or some part of the cowling. That area looks like it is in the area of the reverse thrusters equipment, so that might be part of it as well.
This is amateur speculation, not based on specific facts or knowledge of the engine or the plane.
Damn, that house was robbed of a great trampoline or hot tub rim
Aw, it's good to see them reunited. Faith in humanity restored!
You didn’t really need that part of a fan blade. That’s why they put some many in there.... In all seriousness, I’m really glad the plane made it back safely. We didn’t need another Southwest....
Damn. So glad they got this bird on the ground safely.
So they did end up paying the 9,999 the guy was asking for huh?
“The ntsb stole my cock ring!”
What are you doing step-777?
This is why I prefer flying airplanes with more than one engine, or at least an ejection seat.
I'm not mechanic but I don't think that's supposed to do that.
A little duct tape and she will be as good as new!
I am the 777th upvote.
Hi the 777th upvote, I'm Dad! :)
Wonder if they are going to wire frame the whole thing up and try to place all the parts in their place? 3D map it then show how it was destroyed on replay?
If the NTSB ain't doing it, at least Seconds From Disaster will.
That hole in the Center Wing Tank tho... yikes!
Hole in the skin, not the tank itself. The tank doesn't fill that whole space, it's mostly empty or with some ductwork and air packs shoved around there.
Does anyone know what the flight number was? Thanks.
United Flight 328
So... the front fell off.
And it has now been towed outside of the environment.
Hopefully it wasn't made out of paper...or any paper derivatives...like cardboard.
Slaps side of it, welp, here’s your problem
The best part of this picture is how that plane is in one piece on it's own legs, not that catastrophic engine failures lead to departure of controlled flight these days.
Also, it does look like she chucked a fan blade.
Nothing some duck tape cant fix
Well, see there’s your problem right there.
Portal 1 references anyone?
Damn, seems like that other guy didn't get to keep what fell in his yard.
I woulda kept a piece of the engine if it fell on my lawn lol
That engine took quite the beating.
Goddammit what Potatoes do people use to take pictures... FFS it’s 2020, not 2005
Don't make fun of my Yukon gold! ;)
Boeing is doing great PR for Airbus
More like PW for RR or GE.
