I was offline until Adam texted me that plane parts were falling in CO. Serves me right for unplugging for the day.
This is about 3-4 miles and on the flight path of my old neighborhood. I actually texted friends to see if any parts showed up at their house.
So I’m morbidly fascinated by it all. And since (so far) no injuries have been reported, and the plane landed safely, we can all stop and gawk at the spectacle.

I got this first photo from the man who lives in this home where the engine intake fell. There is damage to his home’s gutter and to his truck. The intake then rolled onto his front lawn. #Broomfield pic.twitter.com/fyZSDLwNwr

Just to the north of this house is a huge neighborhood park, soccer fields, dog park, walking paths, where a lot of debris fell. It was about 50 degrees when this happened, so a lot of people were out and about.
A passenger on United 328 took this video of flames shooting out from the engine. Some people told me they said prayers and held their loved ones' hands as they looked out the window. Flight was on its way to Hawaii from Denver. Glad everyone onboard is safe #9News pic.twitter.com/c8TNYlugU2

I think those are the highlights…I’m sure there will some fun interviews on the news tonight.
And I’m sure you’re thinking what I’m thinking…what were 231 folks doing flying to Honolulu during a pandemic?? Or maybe that’s just me.
