United B777 has ENGINE FAILURE+FIRE on departure | Cowling S

United B772 performing flight UAL328 from Denver to Honolulu was climbing through 13000 feet when the pilots declared MAYDAY reporting a right engine failure and requesting to return immediately.

The calm of pilots during situations that would cause normal people to shit their pants is amazing. One of the most chilling and heartbreaking ATC conversations I ever heard was from the pilot of a PSA heavy immediately after a mid-air collision. His jet was doomed, and when he made transmission, it was nose down and screaming towards earth. He simply said:
"Call the equipment."
