A United Airlines flight has made an emergency landing after suffering major damage to one of its engines and dropping huge pieces of debris over a neighborhood in Colorado.

Cops in Bloomfield responded to reports of objects falling from the sky on Saturday afternoon. 

Huge pieces of the plane’s engine cowling could be seen littering the lawns of houses.

The broken pieces are believed to have come from Flight 328 which diverted and landed safely in Denver shortly after takeoff. The Boeing 777-200 had been scheduled to fly to Honolulu in Hawaii. 

One man who said he was a passenger on the flight tweeted: ‘I’m on #UA328, pilots did an amazing job because it was loud, shaking, and scary as hell back here. Fire crews have us out on the tarmac.’ 

Another Twitter user posted a picture from the ground which he said was of the aircraft, which showed the jet’s engine on fire and trailing smoke.
