Passengers Witness Something You NEVER Want To See While Mid-Flight
Yesterday a United Airlines flight made an emergency landing in Honolulu when one of the plane's engines blew, losing parts and debris as the flight crew scrambled to land safely.
The horrified passengers documented the experience and shared images and video after landing.

45 minutes of the flight remained when the incident occurred, causing the pilot to cut the trip short.

Some kept a sense of humor about it despite the seriousness of the situation:

The plane did, however, land safely with no reported injuries.
