In February 2018, United Airlines Flight 1175 took off from San Francisco toward Honolulu. More than 370 people were on board.

Less than an hour away from the Hawaii capital, passengers heard pieces of metal rattling loudly, and the plane started to shake. Outside, the plane’s right engine was exposed, its cover lost over the Pacific Ocean…

The planes were powered by similar engines

The Boeing 777 involved in the 2018 incident was powered by Pratt & Whitney’s PW4000 112-inch engines. The engine damaged on Saturday outside Denver was also a Pratt & Whitney engine, the PW4077.
