This is not something anyone wants to see when looking out the window of their plane.
A horrifying video shows a United Airlines plane engine that seems to violently tremble up and down as the vehicle flies through the sky. According to the person who posted it, the problem is in the middle.
The footage was posted on Twitter with the caption: "This morning on #DIA flight UA293. The engine was damaged in the middle of the flight. "The video, which was allegedly shot in the early morning flight from Denver to Orlando, appears to show one of the engines rocking up and down.
United Airlines confirmed to Fox News that the flight was forced to return to Denver International Airport due to a mechanical problem with one of the engines.
On Twitter, the original poster gave an update explaining that they were "waiting to board a new plane."
They also shared images of messages they received from United Airlines. According to Tweets, the first message read: "We know that returning to the airport was not part of your plans today, so we really appreciate you staying there! Our maintenance team must resolve a technical problem with the engine on your aircraft before we leave again. We do our best to get you on track as soon as possible.
Another image shows a second message that reads, "Our support team needs more time than we thought to get our work done." To get you on the road, we've set a new plane for your flight, arriving shortly from Los Angeles. Once we are done preparing the cab, we will begin boarding Gate B47. Delays are very disappointing and we appreciate your patience!
In a statement received by Fox News, a spokesman for United Airlines said: "A United States 293 flight from Denver to Orlando returned to the airport due to a mechanical problem with one of the engines. The flight landed safely and taxied to the gate where customers were traveling normally. Customers set off on a different plane to Orlando. ”
