I’d like to share the context in which I watch this clip. The video is genuinely amazing. The investigation is in its early phases, but what’s illustrated here is the incredible power of integrated, redundant systems informed by history, driven by data and regulatory guardrails.
Engineering isn’t designed to make sure things don’t go wrong, they will and they always do. Engineering, good engineering, assumes they will and then adds layer after layer of calculated protection. That’s how everyone gets home safe.
Perhaps most importantly, good engineering gives flight & cabin crews options and time to make choices to get the best outcomes. That’s the intersection of systems engineering & human factors. It’s what made the outcome of #ual328 a story with only scary images and not funerals.

Just to add: 1) Photos are by Hayden Smith, speedbird5280 on IG, please contact him about using them. 2) Nobody getting injured on the ground was luck. Aircraft returning to DEN was thanks to excellent airmanship and robust engineering. Flying is still safe.
