An engine failure aboard a commercial flight departing Denver International Airport rained debris on a neighborhood before the plane and its 200 passengers safely landed Saturday afternoon.
Airport authorities say the United Airlines flight was bound for Honolulu when the incident occurred. Parts including pieces of a jet engine cowling landed near homes in Broomfield.
