Shredding the Engine covering as it goes.

All landed safely back at the airport though.

Some good vids on twitter of various pieces landed and falling to the ground

There isn't a lot left of that, what is it with modern engines when they go bang they seem too lose a lot of the cowling.

Crikey that's a real mess, surprised it was still on the pylon given how much it was wobbling about

And pretty much at the same time, a 747 Freighter had a similar uncontained engine failure over Holland, shedding pieces of engine that caused some damage and some injuries to people on the ground.
P&W investigators are going to be a bit busy.....

Interesting that the fire kept burning. Not something you’d want 180 minutes from land somewhere over the Pacific. eek

This is one of the oldest 777's flying, being the 5th one built.

As said, above, its a good job it happened so soon into the flight, and not 3/4 hours later out over the Pacific when they were a couple of hours from the nearest runway in either direction....
