Passengers on flight 328 departing from Denver, Colorado, were in for a wild ride on Saturday when engine problems made the Boeing 777 plane return to the airport. What kind of engine problems, you might ask? Well, as captured by one of the passengers, the engine caught on fire, and the debris from it landed in some Colorado resident’s yards and houses.

Massive chunks of the aircraft were found on some Colorado residents' front lawn, definitely confused as to how they ended up there.

Some pieces look to even be around the size of the houses themselves. Fox 31 News cites that much of the debris was found in Bennett, a town not far from the Denver International Airport. It also looks like the fallen debris harmed no one.
