United Airlines confirmed that the flight had been cleared for an emergency landing at Honolulu airport due to a "mechanical fault".

Passengers aboard a United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Honolulu had a scary trip over the Pacific Ocean on Tuesday, after the casing around one of the engines ripped apart, officials said.

The pilot sent out a distress call and crew followed "all the necessary protocols to safely land the aircraft", the airline said in a statement.

News sources reported that an engine covering apparently came off mid-flight. It was delivered new to United in January 1996.

The San Francisco resident wrote that she "heard a big bang" and the plane "started to shake violently" during the flight.

Despite the onboard panic, Mr Haddad managed to keep his cool, tweeting an image of the damage alongside the safety manual captioned: "I don't see anything about this in the manual".

Further footage shows passengers adopting the crash position as the plane prepares to land, chanting "brace, brace, brace" before bursting in to cheers and applause as they safely touch down. "The flight landed safely and all passengers deplaned normally at the gate.?"

There was a loud boom and then it was like rattling, and the plane was kind of shaking like boom, boom, boom.

Thankfully, the plane eventually made a safe landing and the Honolulu Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting team rushed immediately to the scene.

Against the C's, the Cavs forced turnovers in key times throughout the game, and that led to (mostly successful) breakaway dunks. Even though LeBron is still the most ball-dominant player on the Cavaliers, the ball movement will be better from now on.

The twin-engined Boeing 777 was around half an hour from its destination when the incident occurred.
