BREAKING NEWS – Denver, Colorado – A passenger of a Boston-bound commercial flight made an unusual sighting when he looked out of the window and saw a wing of the plane falling apart midair.

Passenger Kevin Clarke said he boarded United Flight 354, a Boeing 757-200 that was departing out of San Francisco and took off on schedule but was told by the pilot that the plane would be forced to divert to Denver, Boston 25 News reported. Then, he saw the problem with his very own eyes. The slat of the plane’s right wing was “coming apart” and missing noticeable chunks.

“I’m like bird strike? That’s not good,” Clarke told the outlet. “We take off, I heard this loud buzzing noise, and then it faded away so I didn’t think much of it and all of a sudden the pilot is coming back, so I threw my window open, peeked out the window and the whole leading edge of the wing was destroyed.”

United Airlines enforced their new policy, where the passengers have to pay extra money for the diversion to Denver, if they wanted to continue on to Boston. UA stated that on each boarding pass, it specifically says, “Passengers must absorb all costs for necessary diversions, including wing disintegrations.”
