The plane, which was heading to Honolulu, Hawaii, “returned to the Denver and landed safely on Saturday after experiencing a right engine failure shortly after takeoff, ”the US Federal Aviation Administration said on Twitter.

Kirby Klements, on whose lawn the large circular piece landed, told CNN it “was a bit overwhelming.”

“It landed on top of my truck,” he said, reporting that another large piece had blown a hole in the roof of a neighbor’s house.

The FAA said it was “aware of reports of debris in the vicinity of the plane’s flight path.”

United Airlines tweeted that “no injuries were reported on board.”
