Passengers on a United Airlines flight to Hawaii have described hearing a "bang" before the plane started "really started shaking", with one calling it the "scariest flight of my life".  Flight 1175, which was travelling to Honolulu from San Francisco, landed safely on Tuesday in Hawaii after an engine cover came off during its flight from California, the airline said. "Our pilots followed all necessary protocols to safely land the aircraft," United said in a statement, adding that all passengers departed the Boeing 777 normally at the gate. The airliner landed as emergency responders waited nearby, said Hawaii Department of Transportation spokesman Tim Sakahara. Images posted on social media show an engine with the exterior cover missing as the plane approaches Honolulu. Video shows the engine shaking back and forth with pieces of the cover flapping in the wind.

Reason unknown at the moment.— Flightradar24 (@flightradar24) February 13, 2018 Passenger Haley Ebert told the New York Times she heard a “huge bam” as part of the casing came away from the engine. “Everyone on our side flung open their windows just to see what it was,” Ms Ebert said. “The casing to the engine had sort of flown off. There were pieces flying into the ocean, nuts and bolts flying out a little bit. A bolt hit the wing, and it just made this huge bam.” An emergency was declared due to a vibration in the right engine, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said in an email, adding that the agency will investigate the incident.
