Wheel falls off United Airlines Boeing moments after takeoff from LA airport: Watch

A wheel reportedly fell off a United Airlines Boeing 757-200 moments after takeoff on Monday, July 8. An alarming video shared by RadarBox shows the moment the tire detached from the plane’s landing gear and fell to the ground seconds after the plane took off.

United later confirmed that a wheel came off at 7 a.m. as Flight 1001 departed Los Angeles International Airport for Denver. Fortunately, the plane landed safely in Denver about three hours later. No crew members or passengers were injured.

A United spokesman said the wheel was later found in Los Angeles. The cause of the incident is under investigation. It is unclear whether it caused ground damage.

A very similar incident occurred last March, when a Boeing 777-200 bound for Osaka, Japan, lost a wheel after takeoff from San Francisco. The plane had to be diverted to LAX, where it landed safely. The tire that came off damaged some vehicles in the airport parking lot.

Boeing Agrees to Plead Guilty to Criminal Fraud Charge

Years of investigations, lawsuits and whistleblowing have tarnished Boeing’s reputation. The company has agreed to plead guilty to a criminal fraud charge related to two 737 Max jetliner crashes. The move comes after the government said the company violated an agreement that shielded it from prosecution for more than three years, according to the Justice Department.

“We can confirm that we have reached an agreement in principle on the terms of a resolution with the Department of Justice, subject to the completion and approval of specific conditions,” Boeing said in a statement to ABC News.

The agreement requires the company to pay the maximum fine allowed by law and invest at least $455 million in its compliance and security programs. However, the agreement must be approved by a federal judge to take effect.
