Well that debunks the initial reports that it was a contained failure.
It looked like it was, based on the passenger's video. Front fan vibrating but still going around, cowling gone but no gaping holes in the side of the engine...but obviously not. Wow, there were 241 very fortunate people on that flight and who knows how many more on the ground. A fully loaded 777 coming down inside the city of Denver would have been really ugly.

I'm pretty sure he said that because of all the problems they recently had with the 737 Max.

The slats on the leading edge of the wings, l helped build those for years. I shot the flush rivets, every one of them will be +.002 to -.001. As a contractor for Boeing it has been a tough year for us. Wednesday will be the last day for another group of layoffs.
