Well Pat and I took off for our annual trip to our favorite place on earth Maui on Sunday 3/21/12 out of the Oakland Airport at 8:45 am on Hawaiian Airlines About an hour into the flight over the ocean we start hearing this popping sound and then we start losing elevation and Pat got light headed. I did not really notice anything until the captain comes on the loud speaker and says that we have a situation and that 1 of the engines failed and that we will be turning around and will be making an emergency landing at SFO airport. Well Now I started getting concerned and Pat and I held hands with the rosary in between our hands. The entire plane became silent and it was very chilling the plane was flying fine and my ears were tuned into the engine and listening for the engine missing ect..ect...

We then got to SFO and when we were landing we could see that they had stopped all take offs there must have been at least a 100 planes waiting for us to land. I looked out of both sides of the plane windows and all you could see were fire engines and emergency Vehicles waiting on us to land as well. Well seeing all of this now I was freaked out. We landed and everyone started clapping and all was fine. You never know when your time will be up on this earth but that day was not our day. My Bother Charlie is a Chief over at San Bruno Fire and after all of this I Emailed him to let him no what happened and he e mails back " You are Kidding me I was on that call" They back up the S.F. Airport Fire Dept any time there is an issue with a plane  landing so that was very weird and he had no idea we were on the plane
