Broomfield police officers photographed what appeared to be plane debris in a front garden. A resident said they saw the debris fall off the plane and took shelter with their children.
They described “giant metal pieces” which appeared to be “floating down” from the sky.
Parts of Flight 328, a United Airlines plane bound for Honolulu, started falling off the jet after the right-hand engine exploded.
