      Pretty amazing footage of the damaged engine and the various parts that left the 777.

        Pratt and Whitney 4000-112-series engines, not R-R. Used on a total of 130 or so Triple-7s.

          I heard the plane, did not know about the problem until I got home.
          At about 1:00 PM, my family and I were waiting outside a gymnastics place just north of Broomfield for my granddaughters cheerleading competition.
          We were standing outside the building and heard a loud boom in the air. Sounded kind of like a sonic boom, so we were expecting to see a fighter plane, but it was just the standard looking airliner. We were too far to see any damage, and thought the smoke was just a contrail.

            This guy is always a good source when there's any aircraft incidents. He hits on ETOPS also.

              And Boeing had NOTHING to do with it.
              But they will be blamed.
