United Airlines Engine Fails Over Pacific Ocean During Flight To Hawaii32s

United Airlines Engine Fails Over Pacific Ocean During Flight To Hawaii

An airplane or aeroplane (informally plane) is a powered, fixed-wing aircraft that is propelled forward by thrust from a jet engine or propeller. Airplanes come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and wing configurations. The broad spectrum of uses for airplanes includes recreation, transportation of goods and people, military, and research. Commercial aviation is a massive industry involving the flying of tens of thousands of passengers daily on airliners. Most airplanes are flown by a pilot on board the aircraft, but some are designed to be remotely or computer-controlled. The Wright brothers invented and flew the first airplane in 1903, recognized as "the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight". They built on the works of George Cayley dating from 1799, when he set forth the concept of the modern airplane (and later built and flew models and successful passenger-carrying gliders). Between 1867 and 1896, the German pioneer of human aviation Otto Lilienthal also studied heavier-than-air flight. Following its limited use in World War I, aircraft technology continued to develop. Airplanes had a presence in all the major battles of World War II. The first jet aircraft was the German Heinkel He 178 in 1939. The first jet airliner, the de Havilland Comet, was introduced in 1952. The Boeing 707, the first widely successful commercial jet, was in commercial service for more than 50 years, from 1958 to at least 2013. In this case however, a United Airlines engine failed over the Pacific Ocean on Tuesday, February 13, during a flight from San Francisco to Honolulu. The flight landed safely at Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport at 2:42 p.m. Concerned passengers posted photos and videos to social media showing the engine appearing to break apart. Flightradar24 data states the plane was a Boeing 777-222. Credit: Haley Ebert via Storyful

Caretaker Soothes Sick 10-Foot Bear 1m37s

Caretaker Soothes Sick 10-Foot Bear

This heart melting video shows Jim Kowalczik, a caretaker at the Orphaned Wildlife Center in Otisville, New York, comforting his namesake Kodiak bear, Jimbo. Jimbo is 24-years-old and was feeling ill earlier this month. A veterinarian examined the big guy, who is 10 feet tall and weighs 1,400 pounds. Jimbo was suffering from an unknown illness, and was uncomfortable and agitated after the vet appointment. Kowalczik wanted to show Jimbo "some extra love" and is seen petting him and talking to him softly. Although obviously massive, Jimbo transforms into a cuddly little bear cub when he is around Jim. The human grabs the bear’s head with both arms, hugging and rocking him like the huge baby that he is. Jimbo then rests his big head in his caretaker’s lap, letting Jim pet him on the head and scratch him behind the ears. Jimbo has lived at the Orphaned Wildlife Center since he was a cub. He sustained injuries at a young age which left him unable to be returned to the wild. The two big guys love wrestling and playing in the snow when Jimbo is feeling ok and even though he could swat the man like a fly, Jimbo just sits there, letting Jim toss snow on his massive head like it’s anything! The dynamic duo hug each other like they are two bear cubs, because little Jimbo has been with the sanctuary all of his life.

Truck Pulled from Ice on New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee

Workers removed a truck on Monday, February 12, that had fallen through the ice on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee over the weekend. ‎Timothy Lacey‎, who took this video, said the truck fell through the ice on Friday and there were no injuries. Workers used air bags to lift the truck from the bottom of the lake, he said. The area around the docks is a popular location for people to drive onto the lake, he said, but ice conditions had changed rapidly to make it unsafe to drive on. Officials have warned people about the ice conditions with warming weather, a news report said. Six inches of ice are needed to support a person, and 8-10 inches of ice can support an all-terrain vehicle, the report said. Credit: ‎Timothy Lacey‎ via Storyful
