United Airlines passengers rattled after plane's engine shell falls off

The pilots had reported a vibration in the right engine

The pilots of United flight 1175 declared an emergency due to a vibration in the right engine before the plane landed safely, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesman Ian Gregor said in an email.

Video show scraps of metal and other pieces of the engine flapping in the wind.

"No injuries reported, flight landed safely at Honolulu Airport", the agency tweeted.

In another, he posted a video and said: "That looks bad, plane and simple".

"Everyone on our side flung open their windows just to see what it was", Ms Ebert said.

The engineer detailed that the casing of the engine flew off 36minutes before landing.

It is now unclear what caused the part of the plane to come loose and fly off.

"Scariest flight of my life", passenger Maria Falaschiā€ tweeted along with a photo of the engine malfunction.
