🇺🇸 Flight UA328 was able to land safely in Denver following a serious starboard engine incident after takeoff.
Denver police continue to collect engine wreckage.
This 27-year-old Boeing 777-200, also known as the WA005, is one of the first Boeing 777 aircraft to be used for test flights. This fact most likely has nothing to do with what happened in Denver today. Aircraft engines are regularly changed and serviced throughout their entire service life.
Boeing applied Thrust Asymmetry Compensation on the 777,
which automatically (to a certain extent) adjusts the rudder taking into account the power loss in one engine.
