        @isabel lind Daaaang... there’s a catch 22 situation.

      2. isabel lind

        @Junior von Claire I'm sure we'd have heard it on these tapes if they had. Last yr a B777 had to return to LAX after losing engine power and dumped fuel over an elementary school...no injuries but I wonder if it was necessary.

      3. isabel lind

        @Formula 1st LOL!😊😊😊

      4. mafiaboy87

        @Bob Rae pictures show the blade punched a hole in the centre tank, so that may have solved that. Or they just performed an overweight landing. As long as they calculated the stopping distance was within the runway, primary concern would be to land the aircraft rather than airframe damage, in situations like this

      5. Junior von Claire

        @mafiaboy87 “mafia” boy? How old are you, sonny? My reliance on the investigation has no effect upon it, nor does your silly rant.

      Captain joe: Perfect for a vid!

    3. mmjmj

      why dont they answer the qns, on board crew and passenger no

    4. Elaine Blackhurst

      Wow amazing I applaude that pilot so cool you know your in safe hands with a US pilot I’m from UK. Felt sorry for ATC they were so professional not every day you have plane on fire to talk to and give advice to they were magnifico bravo indeed 🇬🇧🙋🏻‍♀️🇺🇸👍✈️👨‍✈️👩‍✈️🙏⭐️🥇ATC. And Pilots


      can i use this video for yt please say yes

    6. Jake Stewart

      I know this doesn't have anything to do with the video, but I would like to share these questions and this message with as many people as possible. 1. What do you think happens to someone after they die? 2. Do you think there is an afterlife? 3. If heaven exists, how do you get there? 4. Do you think you are good enough to get into heaven? I'm definitely not good enough to get into heaven. Here are a few questions to test your goodness: 1. How many lies have you told in your whole life? 2. Have you ever stolen? 3. Have you ever used God's name in vain? 4. Jesus said that "whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5:28). Have you ever looked with lust? 5. If you have broken any of these commandments, would you be innocent or guilty on Judgment Day? 6. Would you go to Heaven or Hell? The Bible says that "all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone" (Revelation 21:8) and "Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people - none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). So, if you are guilty of any of the ten commandments, then you are in trouble when Judgment Day comes! Do you know what God did for guilty sinners so that we wouldn't have to go to Hell? 2,000 years ago, God became a human being, Jesus of Nazareth, who suffered and died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead on the third day, defeating death. The punishment that we deserve for breaking God's law, Jesus took in our place. He paid the fine that we could never pay so that God can legally set us free by forgiving our sins. He is just, by punishing evil through Jesus' death on the cross, while being rich in mercy towards us. What you have to do is repent, or turn toward God, and believe in Jesus Christ. Don't trust your own goodness, because, as Jesus said, "No one is good - except God alone" (Mark 10:18). Trust alone in the savior. The moment you do that, God will forgive every sin you have ever committed and grant you eternal life, and He will give you a new heart with new desires, so that you will love to do what is right. You will be born again. But you must repent and trust in Jesus. When are you going to do that? Here is a short Christian movie on this subject and depression: usfilm.info/fire/msaqrqyPhLR40cg/video.html

    7. sal makis

      Wow, I could hear the engine fire alarm of triple seven. That is really scary.

      1. sal makis

        Wtf. there are so many stupid comments..I'm shocked.

    8. I Got 99 Problems but My Alt Aint One

      Ya notice that wing isnt going anywhere.murica

    9. Thomas Jensen

      A mayday call is not that serious....this aircraft is certified to fly normally with 1 engine.

      1. Thomas Jensen

        @VASAviation - ohhhh.....you need help.

      2. VASAviation -

        PAN PAN is less serious than MAYDAY

      3. Thomas Jensen

        @VASAviation - no it's not....there was never any danger that control of the plane would be lost. If "mayday" is "very serious", then what is pan-pan?

      4. VASAviation -

        It is very serious

    10. Logan11thMEU

      this is a GE90 engine correct ?

      1. VASAviation -


    11. sokin jon

      Textbook. Kudos to the flight crew and controllers.

    12. Jimmy Newman-Tyler

      the aircraft obviously not fully loaded; no need to dump fuel prior to return & land. Great performance by the crew

      1. sokin jon

        is very good that no one hurt,thanks god

    13. Jorge Calienes

      General question here - is there a modern way of knowing the souls on board question? Maybe using technology (assuming the system is available)? To me, when going through a these stressful circumstances, checklists, it is a bit distracting (not specifically on this video).

    14. Channel Dad Bryon Lape

      If I looked out the window and saw that, I just might ship my pants.

    15. Shauka Hodan

      This just happened hours ago, how did you get it so fast...bravo

    16. SiSiSiUSA

      Boeing makes the worse planes... airbus is so much better. Boycott boeing!!

      1. Shauka Hodan

        Both pilots and ATC’s did a good job.

    17. noob gaming

      Nice video 🤩🤩🤩

    18. Rtruo85

      So terrifying to hear the engine fire alarm in the background

    19. pop5678eye

      In case any passenger still questions what pilots get their paychecks for... It's training to get you safely on the ground!

    20. Junior Mc kie

      That's the magic of CRM when you say the words Mayday.

    21. robo931

      So son of scab fly with Garrett Piedmont CA thought these guys were unsure? Kid needs to stick to promoting erectile dysfunction meds on his insta and leave the flying to the adults.

      1. Slappy McGillicuddy

        okay buddy

    22. TheSoundsage

      Here's the poor pilot looking out his window at a flaming, vibrating engine and the air traffic controller is asking him "how many souls on board?" "You mean before or after the heart attacks?" (or better: :"Why don't you ask the F%$cking ticket clerk?"

    23. William Stanley

      Does anyone know why they would have wanted left turns when the right engine was out. Seems like that would require heavier control inputs (rudder, aileron) against the dead engine. They may have needed the left turn initially because of terrain given lost climb performance. Just curious.

      1. Slappy McGillicuddy

        Captain Joe explains it on his channel, it is not recommended to make turns over the dead engine on a twin, since the #1 engine was the good engine, they turned left. Also by this time the Captain had taken over the controls and it naturally is easier to make left turns from the left seat.

    24. bilishu aliss

      Textbook. Kudos to the flight crew and controllers.

    25. arona fall

      Good job Pilots!

      1. bilishu aliss

        Thanks VASAviation - ✔✈

    26. jcm028

      caption said "so long" but this dude was flying to Hawaii, he threw out the "mahalo"

    27. 台独轮子港独,哦港独没了呀,那台独轮子都是蠢逼

      is very good that no one hurt,thanks god

    28. Alex S

      I was on with Denver Center and heard “things are starting to fall apart up here,” then found about this about 30-60 mins later. I assume it is was the same plane.

    29. John Arnold

      Why wasn't the engine extinguished and shut down? Too catastrophic?

      1. VASAviation -

        It was

    30. gioyu comi

      Literally got this up before the NTSB team could even fully mobilize, that is impressive speed.

    31. Lowly Worm

      Did they squawk 7700 or nah? Cuz I didn’t get a FR24 alert when this happened. Anyone else?

      1. gioyu comi

        So professional for both parties, job well done.

    32. Roger Reynolds

      Both pilots and ATC’s did a good job.

    33. Dave F Ryan

      My understanding when declaring a MayDay and turning off an ATS routing or a SID, was west bound, turn left and east bound turn right. Time wasting asking what direction of turn would be liked. Two crew and CRM in effect one working the radio one flying and noting one busy, so worked the radio.

    34. ecclestonsangel

      I heard later that day the same thing happened with a similar P&W 4000 engine on a 747 in Europe. Things are NOT looking good for Pratt & Whitney right now!

    35. Jeffrey Bunke

      Not trying to armchair qb this, but mayday wasn’t the appropriate call. Pan pan or better yet, emergency aircraft would be the proper call. If this was in Hong Kong or China, ATC would not be happy. The crew did a fantastic job and this is only a nit pick detail. Mayday tells Foreign ATC that you need immediate vectors to land. They anticipate you aren’t able to remain airborne or have severe onboard fire/smoke. Pan Pan or emergency aircraft tells them you have some time. Time to dump fuel, run checklists, make passenger briefings. A UPS aircraft declared Mayday and proceeded to dump fuel for over an hour. Needless to say, ATC in the region was not happy.

    36. Prince Omares

      Pilot is a lion 🦁

    37. Kolcobrzuch

      Do we know if they dumped fuel? it seems to me there was no time for that so they landed almost fully loaded and managed to do a full stop on RWY. Respect!

    38. On Time For My Party

      Amazing communication skills good job

    39. StonyRC

      DAMN ... Boeing cannot catch a fucking break!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    40. rocknaroundtheclock

      We just need to run some checklists. Checklist: - Is the plane on fire? - Yes - Land!

    41. isabel lind

      Thanks VASAviation - ✔✈

    42. Andrew Sellers

      I've been listening to your ATC coverage for a long time now. As a student pilot, I find the information invaluable.

    43. miko foin

      This guy was perfect. If he ever sees this ... Thank You 🙏 Great Job.

    44. 149-AR

      Another shitty incident from shitty planes company a.k.a Boeing

      1. miko foin

        Do the UFO spotting from Phoenix! Thanks!

    45. JJ

      good piloting skill.. but the radio calls... why didn't the pilot use the standard phraseology?

    46. zach miller

      Good job guys

    47. Sam Cheung

      So professional for both parties, job well done.

    48. german cortes

      What a stupid video

      1. redsoxers

        Too many big words in it for you?

    49. Saint James

      Did they dump fuel? What does "heavy" mean?

      1. Slappy McGillicuddy

        "heavy" is attached to the callsign of any aircraft with a gross weight of 300,000 pounds or more, it is incorporated into the call sign, to warn other aircraft/air traffic controllers that they should leave additional separation to avoid this wake turbulence

      2. TooMuch. Online

        'Heavy' refers to the weight of sh%t in the passenger's underwear.

    50. Jonathan Collins

      “Somebody stepped on you” I’ll take that as “I wasn’t paying attention to the radio and this will be my excuse.”

    51. schnuurtchke

      Mayday mayday mayday

    52. schnuurtchke

      Sick 😷 airplane ✈️

    53. Wray Day

      Look, its good, everything is fine... the spinnie bit is still spinning and most of the engine is still there.... totally could of made it XD.

    54. Ramiro Guerrero

      Pilots are the coolest, 🤓, that's was a great job, by the book, good com 🍻

    55. Zaid Mahomedy

      Did the pilot share the fact that there was an engine fire or number of souls / amount of fuel on another channel? Or perhaps that audio wasn't included?

    56. David Callahan

      Pretty cool that technology let's them lose an engine and still be able to come back and land. Nice job by pilots

    57. playgroundchooser

      2:47 well there's your problem!

    58. A V

      Glad everyone made it back safe

    59. Vanessa Ruiz

      ugh i dont think i'd stay seated next to that engine like the person who filmed that clip.

    60. Will Myers

      Do the UFO spotting from Phoenix! Thanks!

    61. Juan pablo

      Do you have the american airlines flight 2292 chat about a UFO flying towards new mexico or leaving new mexico it happen on sunday 02/21/21?

    62. Melanie Souza

      LOVE it when all ends well 🙏

    63. DimasPIK

      Yang dari youtubenya capt. Vincent langsung kesini coba kasih likenya dulu wkwkwk

    64. EVIL QTip

      Sadly seeing that engine on fire ! Me being in the plane looking out that window I would have put my head down sadly saying this is my end we are going to blow up in the air or crash for sure... 1000 thoughts and regrets would have went through my mind.. Landing living is just pure miracle.. !!!!

    65. EVIL QTip


    66. konsul2006

      Pros. All around. But it shouldn't happen in the first place 🤔

    67. Swayam Shrestha

      Why all people coping this same thing

    68. Melissa Peters

      You need nerves of steel to do these jobs my goodness.

    69. produKtNZ

      I work for a Pratt and Whitney site. The things I hear.....

    70. Art Alagao

      The damaged karate encouragingly stamp because drake eventually guard underneath a happy tray. deafening, unequal difference

    71. M Gomez

      Pilot was calm and in control of situation at hand.

    72. Lee Henry

      Gotta appreciate how quickly everyone deals with the situation!

    73. D MG

      Too many layoffs @ Boeing no more quality.

      1. D MG

        @Slappy McGillicuddy Correct Boeing use to have members over seeing their engines regardless of who has the contract too many layoffs.

      2. Slappy McGillicuddy

        Boeing doesn't make the engines

    74. Lorenzo G

      There’s a video out there of the engine actually exploding in air

    75. Jeff Pinter

      What happens to all the other inbounds?

      1. Dynasty001

        Diverted or put on hold.

    76. John Falcon

      are all the random lines representing fallen engine parts?

      1. Michael Melvin

        Those are depictions of various navaids, airways, intersections, etc that air traffic controllers use to reference an aircraft position on their radar scope.

    77. Something Original

      Not this video but im beginning to suspect the ATC could be just as bad as security guards at dcs omg another career profession deals with aholes we cant get fired for being aholes also

    78. Weasel Worm

      Very good. The professionalism is appreciated

    79. Jonathan Benjamin

      The calm and composed crew did a great job!

    80. richard c

      Boing needs to be put out of business!

      1. redsoxers

        It’s a Pratt & Whitney issue, not Boing.

    81. Jason W

      The number or pilots that were frustrated that the local news called the airport DIA (denver international airport) instead of DEN were ridiculous - was almost as though pilots thought they were the only ones that existed :)

    82. Big Al

      I'm loving that an American pilot says Mayday when in trouble. There is no fuss, argument or ambiguity.

    83. Thomas Lange

      The was an incident with a 4-engine Boing comming out of the Dutch Maastricht-Aachen-Airport (MST) just leaving the airport for New York on Saturday. One of the engines was heavily damaged and falling debris damaged several houses and cars. At least 2 people on the ground were injured. The plane landed in Liège (LGG) in Belgium. It was a 747-400 Cargo with medical equipment. Shortly ater the start the tower informed the pilots about a fire in one of the engines. The plane landed in Liege because of the longer runway. Plane number 6T5504, build in 1991. The plane belongs to Bermuda based Longtail Aviation. Hope you find something about it.

    84. Malcolm Clements

      Same aircraft engine fire BA las Vegas.

    85. ari jääskeläinen

      Any information how old engine was?

    86. Michael gay and proud

      Very scary alot more could have gone wrong im glad they got it landed on the runway safely and crew and passengers are ok its all over the news here still its even on the news on my phone

    87. jaypek43

      Also...did they get a chance to dump fuel to lighten their load?

    88. jaypek43

      Wonder why they didn't opt for one of the NS runways with the wind out of 360 degrees?

    89. SiriusGD

      I guess they didn't dump fuel? I always thought that they had to do that. Must not these days cause they were calling him heavy all the way home.

      1. Dynasty001

        The 777 can land above MLW so dumping fuel is not a necessity. "Heavy" is just a term used for widebody aircraft in the US for distance purposes due to the risk of heavier wake turbulence to other aircraft.

    90. Ryan Broich

      Props to ATC - calm cool and collected. Nice job !

    91. Lerxstification

      Question: Why did they not have to dump fuel like almost every other emergency landing? thanks.

      1. Lerxstification

        @Paul Janssen then why dump fuel on other emergencies when the engine is not on fire?

      2. Paul Janssen

        Because the engine was on fire would have made of nice Fireball if they dump fuel

    92. President Trump

      Pilot sounded panicked. Bad pilot.

    93. Sledgehammer

      The video of the engine burning is the real one for this accident?

    94. President Trump

      why it no crash??????

    95. Brian Chilcoat

      I think we should all be happy this didn't happen over the pacific halfway between Cali and Hawaii, what if the engine forced a ditching? I know its not exactly safe to have debris raining down on the populace but I think we should be glad this happened over land and near DEN airport!

    96. kykingz78

      Hopefully not a GE MOTOR

    97. Poingy

      Did they dump fuel?

    98. alida flus

      The professionalism of the pilots is outstanding. Calm, cool, collected and performing required checklists and procedures. This is how lives are saved. Great job.

    99. Bill Beyatte


    100. xxxxxxxxxxhardy

      Can anybody tell me what is the mesh like material where the flames are burning ?
