In-Flight Video Shows Plane Passengers Bracing For Landing After Engine Broke Apart

Plane accidents have become a staple plot degree in some of our favorite movies and Tv displays, but the fictionalized drama became a terrifying reality for more than 300 passengers aboard United flight 1175 Tuesday evening.
