MUST SEE: Passengers Capture Wild Video of Plane Engine in Flames Before Emergency Landing

This is perhaps the most terrifying footage ever filmed onboard a commercial flight.

It is extremely difficult to step foot onto an airplane and not acknowledge the risks of taking flight.  Even those who are unbothered by the idea of flying have some tacit understanding of the situation:  If something goes awry, whether that be with the weather, the maintenance, the passengers, or the pilot, gravity is going to do a real number on you.

Some never conquer this fear, while others, who’ve previously suggested that they are unconcerned with such worry, may find themselves at least a bit uneasy with a situation that occurred high above Denver this week.

A United Airlines flight experienced engine failure after taking off from Denver International Airport on Saturday but landed safely after dropping debris over northern Colorado, officals said.

The Hawaii-bound jet was a Boeing 777 with 10 crew members and 231 passengers on board, according to reports.

Frightening video recorded from inside the plane showed the damaged engine on fire.

“When it initially happened, I thought we were done. I thought we were going down,” passenger David Delucia, who was traveling with his wife, told The Associated Press.

After hearing an explosion and seeing a flash of light, Delucia said he quickly stuffed his wallet in his pocket, thinking it would help responders identify his body more easily if he did not survive, he told the AP.

Video of the incident was soon circulating on Twitter.

Debris from the explosion was soon found all around the Colorado metropolis.

One passenger inside the plane, who apparently had nerves of steel, took a riveting bit of video of the engine itself.

The pilot was able to safely land the plane back at the Denver Airport, and, thankfully, no injuries were reported.
