A United flight made an emergency landing in Honolulu on Tuesday after a piece of the cover came off the right engine on a flight from San Francisco, United spokesman Charles Hobart said.
"Scariest flight of my life," passenger Maria Falaschi‏ tweeted.
Another passenger, Erik Haddad, recorded video of the engine as the plane flew over the Pacific.
"That looks bad, plane and simple," he wrote on Twitter describing the sight of pieces of metal missing from the front of the engine cowling.

It is shocking news and very dangerous. But passengers and pilots are also fortunate to have an emergency landing gear. Do not let this happen again, maybe not always good luck to fight.
