Passengers on United Airlines flight 1175 from San Francisco to Honolulu experienced an unfortunate incident Tuesday when the engine’s cowling fell off mid-flight. The plane made it to its destination safely, though it did make an emergency landing.
Google Engineer Erik Haddad was on the flight, and captured this video from his seat on board the Boeing 777-200. The cowling, or the piece that cover’s the plane’s engine, is completely missing. A piece of the plane can also be seen shaking in the clip.
