Shortly after takeoff, the hood of the 2 engine of the Airbus A320 (N227FR) came off, and the 166 of passengers on board went through moments of panic. It's not nice to look out the window and see how the engine hood flies.
The pilots declared an emergency and brought the aircraft safely to the ground. They returned to Las Vegas after 12 minutes after taking off. This is the 40 case, from 1992 until now, in which the engine hood has come off.
