On July 19, 1989, at 1516, a DC-10-10, operated by United Airlines
as flight 232, on its way from Denver to Chicago, experienced a
catastrophic failure of the No. 2 tail-mounted engine during cruise
flight. The separation, fragmentation and forceful discharge of
stage 1 fan rotor assembly parts from the No. 2 engine led to the
loss of the three hydraulic systems that powered the airplane's
flight controls. The flight crew experienced severe difficulties
controlling the airplane, which subsequently crashed during an
attempted landing at Sioux Gateway Airport, Iowa. There were 285
passengers and 11 crewmembers on board. One flight attendant and
110 passengers were fatally injured.
