A scary situation unfolded during United Airlines Flight 1175 from San Francisco to Hawaii. The covering for engine no. 2 fell apart mid-flight, about 40 minutes before landing.
Many passengers recalled their moments of nervousness and fear, saying "My husband and I were just praying because we had never gone through this experience, I really thought we were going to die... "There was a loud bang ... and then the plane really started shaking. It was like rattling and the plane was kind of shaking like boom, boom, boom."
Why and how did the engine covering fall off on the United Airlines flight? Would an event like this deter you from flying ever again?
