The flight took off from Denver Airport and was destined for Honolulu with 231 passengers and 10 crew members. However, the plane suffered mechanical failure in its right engine in mid air, leading to a fire under the wings and a sudden declination in the altitude of the Boeing 777-200. The fire was followed by a huge explosion and flash of light thus triggering the panic among the passengers. The fire was so massive that debris of the engine parts crashed into the fields of Denver Suburb. However, fortunately, the Boeing flight landed successfully on the Honolulu Airport without any damage to onboard people and those on the ground.
