“The plane started shaking violently, and we lost altitude and we started going down,” said passenger David Delucia, according to The Associated Press. “When it initially happened, I thought we were done. I thought we were going down.”

Delucia and his wife put their wallets with their driver’s licenses in their pockets. “In case we did go down, we could be ID’d.”

The pilot was able to land the plane safely. Passengers were more than happy. I mean, these purple almost avoided a plane crash.

Tyler Thal witnessed the incident from the ground. It was terrible.

“While I was looking at it, I saw an explosion and then the cloud of smoke and some debris falling from it. It was just like a speck in the sky, and as I’m watching that, I’m telling my family what I just saw and then we heard the explosion,” he told the AP. “The plane just kind of continued on, and we didn’t see it after that.”

Kirby Klements felt great although a piece of debris hit his truck.

“If it had been 10 feet different, it would have landed right on top of the house,” he said. “And if anyone had been in the truck, they would have been dead.”

Chunks of debris landed in Broomfield. That’s about 20 miles north of downtown Denver as reported by KUSA-TV.

No one got hurt and there’s an investigation into the case.
