Initial examination of the right engine fan revealed the spinner and spinner cap were in place and appeared undamaged. All fan blade roots were in place in the fan hub, two blades were fractured. Source: Just a few of the details released by the NTSB in their latest update following the United Airlines #328 inflight emergency.
