Plane crashes have become a staple plot point in some of our favorite movies and TV shows, but the fictionalized drama became a terrifying reality for more than 300 passengers aboard United flight 1175 Tuesday evening.

The plane was making the trek from San Fransisco to Honolulu when it was discovered that the outer casing on one of the plane's engines had malfunctioned and ripped apart high above the Pacific Ocean. As a result, the pilot had to declare an emergency due to heavy vibration coming from the right engine, forcing the passengers and crew to prepare for an emergency landing.

In a clip recorded by one of the panicked passengers, people can be seen bracing themselves for a rocky return to solid ground.

Fortunately, the pilot was skilled enough to make sure everyone landed without a scratch! I would have been losing my damn mind.
