Denver Departure, Mayday Mayday

“The airplane returned safely to Denver; none of the 229 passengers or 10 crewmembers were injured.”

I was about to pax with some other pilots when several of us started getting images like the one above and asking, “have you seen this?”. The above quote is stated so matter of factly on the NTSB website, however, I believe it is worth pausing now to thank God that the nature of the failure and the actions taken by the crew ensured the safe return of all passengers and our airline colleagues back to the airport. 

If you’re interested, check out these photos supplied by the NTSB.
