Passenger Recounts United Airlines Flight After Engine Bursts into Flames Midair – Watch Videos

When Barbara Underwood saw the fire bursting out of the plane’s starboard engine during her United Airlines flight home to Hawaii on Saturday, she could think of only one thing to do. “I turned my texting back on and said my final goodbyes to our children. Now we didn’t know what was going to happen. It was pretty terrifying,” the Kauai woman told Hawaii News Now.

Underwood was flying with her husband from Denver to Honolulu on United Flight 328 when the terrifying incident began to unfold, she told the outlet. She was looking out the window when she noticed the engine seemed to be shaking. “And then as I was looking at it, it just blew fire,” she said of the doomed starboard engine.

Most people on board didn’t even seem to realize what had happened, she said. After the compromised craft returned to the airport, the majority of folks on the flight simply boarded a new United plane and continued on their journey to Honolulu, United said in a statement late Saturday.

Those who didn’t want to travel were given hotel accommodations. The airline said it’s working with the federal agencies investigating the incident.

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
