United Flight 328 was forced to make an emergency landing at Denver International Airport following the engine failure shortly after its takeoff. While no traveler got injured in a flight bound for Honolulu, a piece of engine covering was reportedly somewhere in Broomfield, Colorado.

Boeing (NYSE: BA) recommended the suspension of its 777 planes that have the same type of engine.

“While the NTSB investigation is ongoing, we recommended suspending operations of the 69 in-service and 59 in-storage 777s powered by Pratt & Whitney 4000 engines until the FAA identifies the appropriate inspection protocol,” Boeing said in a statement.

The initial federal investigation showed that two of the engines’ fan blades were fractured, one near its root while the second was broken half-way through. Fan blades in the other engine sustained damage as well.
