A United Airlines flight was forced into an emergency landing yesterday after one of its engines was severely impaired mid-flight, leaving passengers terrified.
The United flight was operating between San Francisco and Honolulu after a loud bang apparently shook the aircraft.
It was discovered by passengers that one of the Boeing 777s engine covers had come off around half an hour before the flight was due to land.
The flight eventually made a safe emergency landing at its destination with nobody on board hurt. The airline will be fully cooperating with an investigation by the FAA.
