United Flight from Houston to Fort Myers Forced to Turn Around Due to Engine Fire

A United Airlines flight bound for Fort Myers, Texas, was forced to turn back to Houston on Monday after one of its engines caught fire midair. The Boeing 737 was carrying 167 passengers, some of whom captured footage of flames coming from the engine.

Passenger David Gruninger described the frightening moment, saying, “I remember there was a bright, flashing light coming through the window and it sounded like a bomb had gone off.” The plane landed back at George Bush Intercontinental Airport just 33 minutes after takeoff.

Despite the scare, United Airlines swiftly arranged for another plane to transport passengers to their intended destination. The affected aircraft is set to depart for Orlando later in the week.

In response to the incident, United Airlines offered affected passengers a $200 travel bonus and a $15 meal voucher. In a statement, the airline assured the public that safety is their top priority and that the issue was promptly addressed without any major complications.

The passengers were eventually able to reach Fort Myers with minimal delay, while the plane involved in the engine fire will soon be back in service following necessary inspections and repairs.
