The Federal Aviation Administration said that the flight, which was heading to Honolulu, landed safely and no injuries were reported in the air or on the ground after its right engine caught fire due to a failure shortly after the takeoff from Denver International Airport.
“United Flight 328 safely returned to Denver after experiencing a significant uncontained engine failure. There were no injuries on the ground or in the air,” the United Airlines said in a statement, as reported by Reuters.
Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has launched a probe to find out the cause for the engine failure.
