Passengers on United Flight 328 going from Denver to Honolulu experienced a terrifying situation when the plane’s engine caught on fire while still in the air.

On Saturday afternoon people in the Denver area noticed a plane dropping debris from the sky.

A commercial airliner experiencing engine trouble Saturday dropped debris in several Colorado neighborhoods while making an emergency landing, officials said.

Police in Broomfield, a city about 20 miles north of Denver, released a photograph of a circular, automobile-sized piece of debris next to a local house.

Authorities told ABC News the debris came from United Flight 328, a Boeing 777-200, which departed from Denver around 12:15 p.m. local time and was headed to Honolulu.

The plane experienced “a right-engine failure” shortly after takeoff, so it turned around and landed safety back at Denver International Airport, according to a Federal Aviation Administration statement.

One video from inside the plane shows the engine on fire while mid-flight.

Eventually, the plane returned to Denver airport and everyone was okay.
