Flying can be nerve-wracking at the best of times, so it's not surprising that there was a sense of fear among passengers aboard Flight 293 as they noticed that part of the engine was breaking apart in mid-air. The US flight, which departed from Denver at 7:46 a.m. Sunday, had to circle back to the airport less than an hour into the plane after passengers noticed that part of the engine had detached. A video filmed by a passenger on board named Bobby Lewis captured the scary moment of realization. The video, which is filmed from one of the aircraft's windows during the flight, shows the wing with a piece of material crackling flaps around the wind.
It is reported that the incident happened when the aircraft's engine house unexpectedly opened in the middle of the aircraft, causing concern among passengers.
The plane soon circled back and returned to the departure airport around 08:50.
Customers aboard the aircraft posted to Twitter to share updates they received from the airline after the dramatic landing. [1[ads1]9659003] United said: "We know that returning to the airport was not part of your plans today, so we really appreciate you hanging in there!
" Our maintenance team has to deal with a technical problem with an engine on your plane before we leave again. We do our best to get you started as soon as possible. "
Fortunately, the situation soon changed, and all passengers were flown to Orlando and arrived safely if not later nticipated.
A spokesman for the airline said: "United flight 293 from Denver to Orlando returned to the airport due to a mechanical problem with one of the engines.
" The aircraft landed safely and charged to a street where customers normally planned. Customers have gone on another flight to Orlando. "
This is the second United Airlines emergency landing this month.
Another aircraft was forced to make an unexpected landing recently when a passenger on board was caught in the toilet.  The flight from Washington DC to San Francisco was forced to relocate to the nearest airport to gain mechanical support to free the female traveler.
The equipment was caught on camera, where passengers can be seen standing up in seats to get a better view of the mechanic trying to unscrew the door.
The man can be heard reassuring the passenger that she will be released soon, saying, “We are only working to open the door for the moment, lady; we will get you out soon, ok. "
Originally due to arrive in San Francisco at 8:38 pm local time, it landed in Denver at. 21.21, before finally arriving at its final destination after 10 p.m. 22:00.  A spokesman for the airline said: "We reach out to all customers on board and the customer in the toilet to apologize."
